John Muir founded the Sierra Club in 1892 with 182 like-minded members, and immediately the Club set out to protect America's pristine forests and wild areas.
For over a century, the Sierra Club has played a key role in protecting more than 132 million acres in America's national park and wilderness areas.
To achieve its conservation goals, the Sierra Club works aggressively to influence policies and decisions affecting the environment of North America and the rest of the world.
As issues broaden, the Sierra Club's goals broaden. John Muir never worried about ozone depletion or acid rain, yet these problems now threaten the parks and wilderness areas he and early Club members helped protect. Environmental issues start in our backyard and reach around the planet: global warming and the protection of tropical rainforests are now major concerns.
The Sierra Club's theme remains unchanged: "To explore, enjoy, and protect the wild places of the earth, to practice and promote the responsible use of the earth's ecosystems and resources, to educate and enlist humanity to protect and restore the quality of the natural and human environment, and to use all lawful means to carry out these objectives."
By becoming involved in environmentalism, you can be a part of the protection and restoration of nature's balance by working for campaigns that have local, regional, national, and global environmental impact. You will also learn more about "walking the walk" in your home and lifestyle.
By participating in hikes and outdoor adventures, you can better your health, stay in touch with nature, "recharge your batteries," reduce stress, lose or maintain weight, and meet like-minded friends.
