Our outings are planned and led by the Thomas Hart Benton and Kanza groups of the Sierra Club for conservation-minded people. You do not have to be a Sierra Club member to join this meetup group or participate in the outings. Outings are not limited to the KC area - the Ozarks is a common destination, for example.
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.
During the sign-in process all participants on Sierra Club outings are required to sign a standard liability waiver. If you would like to read the Liability Waiver before you choose to participate in an outing, please click here.
Don't have all the gear for a backpacking trip? No problem, we have some available for loan to Sierra Club members for our local outings.
