What we're about

The Sierra Club is America's largest and most influential grassroots environmental organization. The New Jersey Sierra Club works to protect New Jersey's environment and the planet.

Our Mission:

To explore, enjoy, and protect the wild places of the earth;

To practice and promote the responsible use of the earth's ecosystems and resources;

To educate and enlist humanity to protect and restore the quality of the natural and human environments.

We work on various environmental issues around the state. We educate the public on these various issues through events that we hold throughout the year throughout New Jersey. Every weekend there are hikes lead by our Outings Coordinator that is open to members and the public.

We hope you join us at a local Sierra Club meeting, an event, or an outing!
