Take the pledge. Tell a friend. Tag #YellowstonePledge.

To be a steward and help protect myself and the park, I pledge to:

  • Practice safe selfies by never approaching animals to take a picture.
  • Stay on boardwalks in thermal areas.
  • Protect hot springs by not throwing anything into them.
  • Park in designated areas and avoid blocking traffic.
  • Stay with my car if I’m stuck in a wildlife jam.
  • Follow speed limits and pull over to let cars pass.
  • Travel safely in bear country by carrying bear spray, making noise, and hiking in groups.
  • Keep my food away from animals.
  • Recycle what I can and put my garbage in bear-proof containers.
  • Report resource violations by calling 911 or talking to a ranger.

Once you’ve taken the pledge, let everyone know with #YellowstonePledge on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter!
