As an American I will do my best to...

Be CLEAN in my outdoor manners
I will treat the outdoors as a heritage.
I will take care of it for myself and others.
I will keep my trash and garbage out of lakes, streams, fields, woods, and roadways.
Be CAREFUL with fire
I will prevent wildfire.
I will build my fires only where they are appropriate.
When I have finished using a fire I will make sure it is cold out.
I will leave a clean fire ring or remove all evidence of my fire.
Be CONSIDERATE in the outdoors
I will treat public and private property with respect.
I will think of others that are enjoying the outdoors and act in a way so they may enjoy the outdoors.
I will use low-impact methods of hiking and camping.
And to be CONSERVATION minded
I will learn how to practice good conservation of soil, waters, forests, minerals, grasslands, wildlife, and energy.
I will urge others to do the same.
