What we're about

The Sierra Club is America's oldest, largest, and most influential grassroots environmental organization. This mission of the Sierra Club is to explore, enjoy, and protect the planet. The Headwaters Group of the Sierra Club serves members of Durham, Vance, Person, and Granville 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 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!

Hike Umstead Park Supporting "Saving RDU Forest"

Umstead Park - Reedy Creek Parking

We will start at the Reedy Creek entrance (Harrison Ave), taking the Company Mill Trail down to the creek. After we cross the bridge we will turn LEFT to follow Company Mill trail walking UPSTREAM. Then, when Company Mill trail takes the sharp bend to the north, go off trail and walk along (but inside) the Park boundary until you come to Foxcroft pond (good lunch spot, can potentially stop for lunch here), and then continue through Park and then Dunn property to Odd Reedy Creek Road. Just after you leave the trail, you will see across the creek the discharge stream from the existing quarry site (which was the end point of last night), but you will be on the opposite side of Crabtree Creek

Celebrate the Moon Landing -- Picnic at Sandy Creek Park

The first moon landing was on July 20, 1969, but lift-off was on the 16th. Plus full moon occurs at 5:39 PM on the 16th. Bring astronomical-themed desserts or finger food to share, like Moon Pies and Milky Way Bars, or google images for starry Van Gogh cake. We'll eat some and hike some and maybe do the Sandy Creek treasure hunt. Rain date is Thursday, July 18th. We are inviting the other Sierra Club groups in the Triangle.
