What we're about

The Sierra Club is a national organization dedicated to Explore, Enjoy, and Protect the planet. Locally, our NE Group participates in outdoor adventures and environmental education, and we lobby our local and state government for pro-environmental legislation.

Paved Trail Cleanup - Downtown S-Line

Emmett Reed Park Playground

Open for RSVPs on June 27. Not a Sierra Club event, but we're teaming with Groundwork Jacksonville for cleanup along the S-Line Trail downtown. I need a few folks I can count on to show up and help do a trash cleanup along the beautiful S-Line Trail in downtown Jacksonville. We will clean the 1/2 mile section from W. 6th St to Moncrief Rd. We will be a small group, be outside, spread out, and practice safe social distancing. I will provide trash grabbers, bags, and sanitary wipes. You will be required to sign a City of Jacksonville liability waiver. Please bring: water, gloves (I will supply some if you don't have any), face mask. Please wear your face mask. Groundwork Jacksonville is the city’s primary nonprofit organization specifically created to clean and redevelop Jacksonville's Emerald Trail and convert contaminated land into parks, playgrounds, trails, and other public greenspace. DIRECTIONS: Meet and park at the Emmett Reed Community Center, 1093 W 6th St, Jacksonville, FL 32209. Take I-95 north through Jax. Exit at 8th Street (Exit 353D). Turn left on 8th ST.
