The Sierra Club is America's oldest, largest, and most influential grassroots environmental organization. The mission of the Sierra Club is to Explore, Enjoy, and Protect the Planet. The Cape Fear Group of the Sierra Club serves members of Bladen, Brunswick, Columbus, Duplin, New Hanover, Pender and Robeson Counties. You do not need to live in one of these counties to join our Meetup, and unless specifically noted, you do not need to be a Sierra Club member to attend one of our Meetups, events, and/or outings. We welcome anyone and everyone and would love to see you at one of our events!
Join us for an update on environmental legislation in North Carolina, presented by Cassie Gavin, Senior Director of Government Relations for the Sierra Club - NC Chapter. Key laws this past year include Duke Energy’s ratemaking bill and the Farm Act, with hemp provisions and protections for hog farms.
Presentation on Monday, November 18 at Halyburton Park, 4099 S 17th St, Wilmington. Mix and mingle with pizza at 6 pm; presentation starts at 6:30 pm.
Come join Cape Fear Sierra Club and learn about Geocaching in Halyburton Park at 1 pm on Sunday November 24,
2019. We will meet at the Halyburton Park main building and parking is available there. We will walk on park trails
and locate the Geocaches that are hidden within the park. Previous experience in Geocaching is not required, but it
would be helpful for participants to download the free Geocache app. Geocaching is a real-world, outdoor
treasure hunting game using GPS-enabled devices. Participants navigate to a specific set of GPS coordinates and
then attempt to find the geocache (container) hidden at that location. Participants could download the free Geocache
app on a smart phone to enhance the experience for themselves, or just walk along for a fun learning experience.
This is an easy walk on the Halyburton trails and the hike is suitable for adults and children. There are about 6
Geocaches to discover in the park and the distance is about 1.5 miles. We will complete our Geocaching discovery
within 1.5 - 2 hours. Weather may be cool temperatures and participants should dress comfortably and wear walking
shoes. Participants will be required to sign a Sierra Club liability waiver. Margo Packheiser is the outing leader.
