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.
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!
December 2 (Wed): Cheers! Time for a Swig of Toxic Chemicals! The New Jersey Sierra Club’s State Chapter Toxicology Advisor Dr. Mark Fukayama will speak of how over 4000 “forever chemicals” (because they will never break down) specifically Per-and poly Fluoroalkyl substances (known as PFAS) have contaminated our drinking supplies and bodies. Not only can PFAS impair the functioning of your liver and thyroid but can also contribute to obesity, hormone suppression, pregnancy problems, and cancer. Before the talk, Mark suggests that you watch Dark Waters starring Mark Ruffalo, a true story of how a former corporate lawyer, Rob Bilott, exposed this problem. Dark Waters is available on Amazon Prime.
