The Sierra Club Explore Our Wild North Carolina program is an opportunity to get out and explore some of the great natural treasures in our state. You may participate in organized outings or on your own. The record is an honor system but please have someone at the site initial your record and tell them about the program. When you have finished all 14 areas bring the record to your local Sierra Club meeting or email to OurWildNC@gmail.com to receive your award.
