The Sierra Club is one of the oldest and most influential grassroots environmental organizations in the United States. The Grand Canyon (Arizona) Chapter was formed in 1966 in order to focus attention on stopping dams in Grand Canyon. Our work to protect the Colorado River and Grand Canyon National Park continue today and have been joined by a number of programs to safeguard other areas and issues.
The Grand Canyon Chapter seeks to engage its members and the public in protecting our communities; public lands including national parks, forests, and wildlife refuges; rivers and streams; and wildlife; plus promote renewable energy and energy efficiency in order to reduce pollution and greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to global climate change; and support transit, bike and pedestrian friendly communities to reduce air pollution and energy use.
The Palo Verde Group is one of six groups within the Grand Canyon Chapter. Monthly programs give members a chance to meet others with a common interest and learn about such issues as new conservation ideas, hiking locations, updates on legislative issues or how to start a community garden.
Sierra Club Outings
The Sierra Club is a nationwide organization with active local outings programs open to both members and nonmembers. You're invited to join us as we make friends and explore life-enriching interests. Simply find an outing and contact the leader for additional information or to sign up.
Please, no firearms, radios, or music players. Dogs are allowed only if so noted by the leader in the written description. Participation is by reservation so sign up early to assure a place. Usual group limit is 20 unless fewer is stated in the outing description. Each hike is rated for degree of difficulty and risk.
"A" More than 16 miles or more than 3,000 ft. elevation change (EC)
"B" 8-16 miles and 1,500-3,000 ft. EC
"C" 3-8 miles, 500-1,500 ft. EC
"D" Less than 3 miles and 500 ft. EC
For everyone's safety, leaders have the authority to question trip participants regarding their equipment, conditioning, and experience before and during the trip. Participants are required to sign a standard liability waiver. You can read the waiver here.
CST 2087766-40. Registration as a seller of travel does not constitute approval by the State of California.
Sierra Club liability insurance covers leaders only. Each person is responsible for his/her own first aid equipment. If you are injured, notify the leader immediately. If you leave the trip, with or without the leader's permission, you are considered to be on your own until you rejoin the group. Hikers are encouraged to carpool and share the driver's fuel expense. Additional suggested donations are $1 (member) and $3 (nonmember) deposited with the leader's Group Treasurer.
