Sierra Club Photography, 1925-1960: Outdoor Activities and Activism

Come to our Sierra Club program meetings the 2nd Thursday of most months (except summer).  We socialize from 6:30 - 7 and host a fascinating lecturer/slide show from 7 - 8:30ish.  All are welcome to this free event - members and non-members alike. 

Through the photographs of prominent Sierra Club members, we explore the rise of outdoor recreation beginning in the 1920s and explain how playing outside grew into environmental activism. Recreational activities such as camping, mountaineering and skiing came to represent a set of broader cultural values that transformed the Sierra Club.

Presenter: Kimberly J. Roberts, M.A., archivist, special collections, University Libraries, University of Nevada, Reno
