What we're about

Welcome to the Gay and Lesbian Sierrans (GLS), an activity section of the Mother Lode Chapter of the Sierra Club, centered in Sacramento, CA. GLS is a friendly, relaxed group of lesbians and gay men who enjoy outdoor adventures and camaraderie. Our local group, since 1996, has offered a variety of outdoor activities such as day hikes of varying intensity, bike rides, camp trips and other social activities. We hope to encourage your participation in, and appreciation of the outdoors and help you make new friends in a comfortable atmosphere. GLS outings are led by Sierra Club trained leaders. There are generally no costs for outings, besides sharing expenses such as entrance or camping fees. All adults are welcome on our outings, you don't need to be a member of the Sierra Club, though we'd appreciate that.

We are not currently asking for GLS membership dues, but if you would like to help GLS with a voluntary donation, it's easy online with just a credit card. Please go to GLS's PayPal donation page:
