1. Respect the natural environment and wildlife.

A healthy natural environment and wildlife are essential for our physical and mental well-being. Access to green spaces and natural habitats has been shown to improve mental health, reduce stress, and improve overall health. Conversely, pollution, deforestation, and other environmental destruction can harm our health.

  1. Stay on designated trails.

The trails are usually designed to minimize the impact on natural habitats, including vegetation and wildlife. By staying on designated trails, we can help preserve these habitats and reduce the negative impact of human activities on them.

  1. Leave plants and animals undisturbed.

Plants and animals play important roles in the ecosystems they inhabit. Disturbing them can disrupt the balance of these ecosystems, potentially leading to negative effects on other species and the environment. 

  1. Carry out any trash.

Litter and trash left in nature parks can cause significant environmental harm. It can harm wildlife, pollute waterways, and damage natural habitats. By carrying out trash, we can help protect the environment and preserve the beauty of nature parks. 

  1. Follow Park regulations and guidelines.

Regulations and guidelines are usually put in place to protect the environment and preserve natural habitats. By following these rules, we can help reduce the negative impact of human activities on the environment. 

  1. Use designated restrooms and facilities.

Human waste can have a significant impact on the environment if not properly disposed of. Using designated restrooms and facilities can help ensure that waste is disposed of in a way that minimizes environmental impact. 

  1. Stay alert and aware of your surroundings.

Nature parks can be home to potentially dangerous wildlife, such as snakes, bears, or other animals. Staying alert and aware of your surroundings can help you avoid dangerous situations and stay safe. 

  1. Stay hydrated.

Dehydration can cause a range of health problems, including headaches, dizziness, nausea, and fatigue. Staying hydrated can help prevent these issues and keep you feeling your best while enjoying nature parks.

  1. Wear appropriate clothing and footwear.

Nature parks can have uneven terrain, rocky areas, and other hazards that can cause slips, trips, and falls. Wearing appropriate footwear, such as hiking boots, can help prevent these accidents and keep you safe. 

  1. Observe wildlife from a safe distance.

Approaching too closely can also cause stress and disruption to wildlife, potentially affecting their health and well-being. It can also interfere with their natural behaviors and even cause them to abandon their young or nests. 

  1. Take only photographs, leave only footprints.

Litter and trash left in nature parks can cause significant environmental harm. It can harm wildlife, pollute waterways, and damage natural habitats. By taking only photographs and leaving only footprints, we can help protect the environment and preserve the beauty of nature parks. 

  1. Be courteous and respectful.

People come to nature parks to enjoy the beauty of nature and the peacefulness of the outdoors. Being courteous and respectful to others can enhance everyone’s enjoyment of the park by creating a pleasant and welcoming atmosphere. 

  1. Keep food and trash securely stored.

Food waste can also have significant environmental consequences. It can attract scavengers, create unpleasant odors, and pollute waterways. Keeping food and trash stored helps prevent these issues and protects the natural beauty of the park. 

  1. Report any suspicious or illegal activity to park officials.

Reporting suspicious or illegal activity is a way to show that we are all responsible for the well-being of our community and our natural resources. It’s important to be vigilant and report any activity that could potentially harm others or the environment. 

  1. Participate in educational activities offered by the park.

Participating in educational activities can help increase our awareness and understanding of the natural world. We can learn about the plants, animals, and ecosystems that make up our environment and how we can protect them.


  1. Do not disturb or harm wildlife.

Harming wildlife can have ecological consequences that can impact the entire ecosystem. Many animals play important roles in their environment, and their removal or reduction can lead to imbalances that can harm other species and the environment. 

  1. Do not litter or leave trash in the park.

Litter can pose safety hazards, especially for wildlife. Animals can ingest litter or become entangled in it, which can cause injury or even death. 

  1. Do not pick or damage plants or flowers.

Flowers play a crucial role in the ecological balance of nature parks. They are an important food source for pollinators and other insects, and they also help to regulate the water cycle and prevent soil erosion. Picking or damaging flowers can upset this balance and have negative consequences for the entire ecosystem. 

  1. Do not feed the wildlife.

Feeding wildlife can lead to a dependency on human food that can cause health problems. Human food can be harmful or even deadly to some animals, and it can also cause imbalances in their diets, leading to malnutrition or other health problems. 

  1. Do not bring pets.

Pets can disturb and harm wildlife, which can cause stress and even death to animals living in nature parks. The presence of pets can also disrupt the natural behaviors of wild animals, which can have cascading effects on the entire ecosystem. 

  1. Do not swim or bathe in prohibited areas.

Swimming in natural bodies of water, such as lakes or rivers, can be dangerous due to unpredictable currents, hidden rocks or underwater hazards, and the potential for sudden changes in water depth or temperature. 

  1. Private/own motorized vehicles are prohibited in the park, except with the prior authorization.

Nature parks often have narrow roads, steep grades, and limited visibility, which can make driving difficult and potentially hazardous. Additionally, large vehicles can disturb wildlife and damage fragile ecosystems. 

  1. Do not start fires outside of designated areas.

Fires can be a significant fire hazard, particularly in dry or drought-prone areas. A single spark can quickly spread and cause extensive damage to the natural environment, wildlife, and human property. 

  1. Do not hunt or fish unless it is allowed and with the appropriate permits.

Fish play an important role in maintaining healthy ecosystems, and their removal can have a cascading effect on the entire food chain. Removing fish from a body of water can upset the balance of the ecosystem and lead to negative impacts on other wildlife. 

  1. Do not use firearms or fireworks.

Fireworks contain chemicals and pollutants that can harm the natural environment and wildlife. They can also leave behind debris and litter, which can take a long time to decompose and have a negative impact on the environment. 

  1. Do not use loud music or noise.

Loud music can be disruptive to wildlife and visitors and can interfere with the natural sounds of the environment. Loud music can cause stress and fear in animals and can also disturb nesting birds and other animals that are sensitive to noise. 

  1. Do not trespass on private property within or near the park.

Private property may contain hazards or dangers that are not present in the nature park. Trespassing can put visitors at risk of injury or harm and can also put the property owner at risk of liability. 

  1. Do not disturb or harass other visitors.

Disturbing other visitors in a nature park is generally considered to be impolite and disrespectful. People visit nature parks to enjoy the natural beauty, peace, and tranquility of the surroundings, and disturbing them can ruin their experience. Moreover, parks are shared spaces, and everyone has the right to enjoy them without undue disturbance. 

  1. Do not graffiti or vandalize park property or infrastructure.

Graffiti property in nature parks can be harmful to the environment. The chemicals in spray paint and other materials used for graffitiing can be toxic and pollute the natural environment. This can harm wildlife and plants, as well as negatively impact the overall health of the ecosystem. 

  1. Do not remove any natural or historical objects from the park.

Removing historical objects from nature parks can disturb the natural environment and ecosystem. Historical objects are often part of the park’s natural and cultural landscape and removing them can disrupt the balance of the environment. For example, removing a historical artifact may disturb the soil, which can impact the growth and health of plants and other vegetation.
