Commit to wandering lightly and help us leave this place better than we found it by taking the Wandering Pledge and by sharing with your friends.

I PLEDGE TO BE A RESPONSIBLE WANDERER. WHEN I DO WANDER TO NEW PLACES, I WILL LEAVE THEM BETTER THAN I FOUND THEM.

I WILL CLEAN UP AFTER MYSELF AND MY FURRY FRIENDS WHILE LOOKING FOR OPPORTUNITIES TO CLEAN UP AFTER OTHERS.

I WILL OBEY ALL POSTED SIGNAGE, INSTRUCTIONS, AND TRAIL MARKERS WHILE STAYING ON TRAIL AND WITHOUT PUTTING MYSELF, OTHERS OR THE ENVIRONMENT AT RISK.

WHEN I TAKE PHOTOS, I WILL NOT COMPROMISE MYSELF OR THE ENVIRONMENT IN EXCHANGE FOR SOCIAL MEDIA LIKES.

I WILL BE CONSIDERATE OF OTHERS SO THAT MY EXPERIENCE DOESN'T IMPINGE UPON THEIRS AND WILL OFFER HELP GENEROUSLY WHEN NEEDED.

WHEN I BUILD A FIRE, I WILL NOT BURN TRASH AND WILL BE SURE THAT IT IS FULLY EXTINGUISHED BEFORE I LEAVE.

I WILL NOT LEAVE MY MARK WITH GRAFFITI OR CARVINGS AND WILL LEAVE WHAT I FIND BEHIND.

WHEN NATURE CALLS I WILL BE THOUGHTFUL ABOUT WHERE I ANSWER IT, STAYING AWAY FROM TRAILS AND WATER SOURCES.

I WILL BE RESPECTFUL TOWARD THE PEOPLE THAT CALL WHERE I WANDER HOME, REALIZING THEY HAVE BEEN LOCAL STEWARDS FOR GENERATIONS AND I AM JUST PASSING THROUGH.

I WILL BE PREPARED FOR ALL CONDITIONS, ALL POSSIBILITIES, AND ALL ADVENTURES.

The wandering pledge is based on our shared commitment to take deep and thoughtful care of the places we wander while maintaining and broadening our adventurous spirits.

Let us know you made the pledge and we'll give you a free Pledge Sticker when you visit our store so you can show off your commitment to leaving North Georgia better than you found it!
