This meetup group lists outdoor activities (hiking, biking, backpacking, floating, etc.) of the Thomas Hart Benton [MO] and Kanza [KS] Groups of the Sierra Club.
If you're looking for other events such as general meetings, committee meetings, discussions, social gatherings and fundraisers, please visit the Heartland Friends of the Sierra Club Meetup group. Kanza Group events are also listed on the Kanza Group events page.
Our outings are planned and led by the Thomas Hart Benton and Kanza groups of the Sierra Club for conservation-minded people. Outings are not limited to the KC area - the Ozarks is a common destination, for example.
You do not have to be a Sierra Club member to join this meetup group or participate in the outings, but please click on one of the links to the right if you would like to learn more about the Sierra Club, or have decided to join the Club.
Our outings leaders are Sierra Club volunteers, and the range of outings is as diverse as their interests. Day hikes, bicycling, backpacking, paddling, and camping are common activities but you might also find us picking up trash, watching birds, clearing brush along a hiking trail, crawling in a cave, or eradicating invasive vegetation.
Feel free to suggest nature- or conservation-oriented outings and maybe one of our leaders will make it happen.
