The Sierra Club is America’s largest and most influential grassroots organization.  Explore, enjoy and protect the planet with us.

The Portland/Vancouver Sierra Club Outings & Events MeetUp has two related goals.

First, we offer local outings led by Sierra Club Outings Leaders.

Second, we announce and promote other Sierra Club events and activities, including meetings, presentations, and occasionally an event from an allied organization.

Outings Leaders are typically Sierra Club volunteers, and the range of outings is as diverse as all of our leaders’ interests: hiking, backpacking biking, kayaking and more.  Each of our Outings Leaders has a passion for the outdoors and a willingness to share their expertise with others. Regardless of your level of experience, you may choose from a variety of outings which reflect the diversity of our Leaders’ interests.

We welcome Sierra Club members and non-members in the greater Portland and Vancouver area to join us. However, if you are interested in Sierra Club Membership, please join your local Group.  We’d love to have you!

The Columbia Group is an active group of local citizens from the Northwest corner of the state of Oregon and the Loo Wit Group is an active group of local citizens serving Southwest Washington including Clark, Skamania, Klickitat, Cowlitz, Wahkiakum, and Pacific Counties.  Join your local Sierra Club here:

We invite you to VOLUNTEER with the Sierra Club.

Whether your interest is in activism/conservation, sustainability, hikes, outings, singles events, web design, political efforts, education & outreach, or public relations, we need your energy, ideas, and enthusiasm!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
