Meredith Blackwood

North Carolina State Advocate

I am a NC Native where I spent much of my childhood exploring the woods and parks, camping with my paternal grandparents and enjoying the beaches across the state. I have called Raleigh home for over 30 years now. I enjoy sharing the message with youth and adults at all levels, through teachable moments while out and about, awareness sessions and Trainer Courses. My goal as the State Advocate is to encourage more people and organizations to learn about and share the Leave No Trace message through social media, workshops and outdoor events. If you would like to request my help with your own efforts, please contact me.

Let’s protect and enjoy our natural world together
