What we're about

More than a century ago, John Muir and a group of conservationists laid the foundation for an organization dedicated to preserving and protecting the magnificent wildlands of the Sierra Nevada. The impact of the newly formed Sierra Club was immediate – and its efforts long overdue. With more than 1.4 million members and supporters, the Sierra Club is the leader in the grassroots environmental movement. Sierra Club members not only preserve our unspoiled wildlands, they also protect endangered species and help enact policies so that the air we breathe and the water we drink are safe for future generations. We welcome everyone--Sierra Club members and non members alike--to join this meetup, our monthly General Meeting, outdoor education classes, conservation activities and outings.
