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!

The treasure this month is soup, since February 4th is National Homemade Soup Day. Soup is a perfect winter meal. Make lots to enjoy now and freeze for later.

We hope we can eventually get together to share food, but for now, we are feasting separately and then sharing pictures and recipes.

Molly Jenkins of the US EPA will help us to learn more about how the natural environment benefits our physical and mental health, by showing us the EPA's Eco-Health Relationship Browser, a compendium summarizing the research in an easy to use and understandable way.

This is the monthly meeting of the Sierra Club group in Orange and Chatham Counties.
