I will go to the bank by the wood and become undisguised and naked, : I am mad for it to be in contact with me.

- Walt Whitman: From Song of Myself (1855)

The Naturist Society has been a leader in promoting body acceptance and nude recreation for more than 30 years.

"Officially, The Naturist Society was formed in 1980. Unofficially, however, it goes back much further, to the American "free beach" movement of the 1970s and, earlier still, to a back-to-nature ethos that emerged in Europe during the industrial revolution."

The Naturist Society is also the home of Nude & Natural (N) magazine, the leading publication on naturism in the United States and the authority on socially responsible and adventurous social nudity.

Oregon Clothing-Optional Beach Alliance (ORCOBA) A non-profit, grass roots collection of individuals dedicated to the preservation, maintenance, protection and promotion of family-friendly, clothing-optional recreation at Oregon's two officially-designated nude beaches, Sauvie Island (Collins Beach) and Rooster Rock State Park.

Naturist Education Foundation (NEF) is an educational and informational public charity. NEF hosts the WNGD website and is a publisher of naturist material. NEF also operates the NEF Research Library and commissions public opinion surveys that reflect and measure attitudes toward nudity.

Naturist Action Committee (NAC) exists to advance and protect the rights of naturists throughout North America. NAC supports the responsible recreational nude use of public  lands. NAC monitors legislative and bureaucratic actions and steps in with grass roots action, lobbyists and lawyers, as necessary.

WNGD is very grateful to the friendly people at the ClothesFree International for their support of our mission and for hosting our website for its first 10 years.

Integral Nacktiv A German outdoor recreation group. Nacktiv is a combination of the German word naked=nackt and active=aktiv. Integral means, that nakedness should not be something hidden, something you must be ashamed of: we integrate our nakedness in every day life. We are not only naked at  home, but also in many outdoor activities, such as biking, jogging, walking, riding and so on.
