What we're about

Public Group

Do you like being outdoors and active? Give us a try. We are outside four seasons of the year with lots of hiking, some canoeing, camping and x-c skiing.

This Meetup is a project of two local Sierra Club Groups--Southeast Michigan Group ( (SEMG) and Huron Valley Group ( (HVG); both are part of the Michigan Chapter ( At each outdoor activity, participants are asked to sign a liability waiver and pay a $1 fee.

Important information about how MDOH operates is at the “Pages (” tab, top of the Home page. Please read it before participating.

Read the activity description & assess your ability/preparedness to complete the activity.

While the summary of the outing may say that "location information is not available," in reality, it is ALWAYS in the description of the outing. Simply click the "more" link at the end of the description.

Questions? Contact the leader who is listed in the activity description (Note: the leader may not be the same as the host).

Don’t wait until the night or morning before as all leaders are not "connected" 24/7 (and some don't offer a public cell number).
