Arctic Refuge day-of-solidarity hike at Deception Pass State Park
Dec 6th is a Day of Solidarity for the Arctic Refuge Anniversary. It’s an opportunity to celebrate this special place and to stand with Gwich’in who work every day to protect it from development. As you read this, the Refuge faces an imminent threat of development. The oil industry would like to drill in this sacred place and the Trump administration is helping them get there. The tax bill passed last December requires the government to hold a lease sale as early as next spring. Now is the time to say no. Join us at Deception Pass State Park for a short hike (~2 miles) followed by discussion with Sierra Club organizers working hard to protect the Arctic, along with leaders from Latino Outdoors and Outdoor Asian. We encourage trip participants, whenever possible, to carpool to and from the starting point in order to minimize their carbon emissions. However, it is at your sole risk, whether you are the driver or passenger. The Sierra Club does not have insurance for carpooling arrangements and assumes no liability for them; carpooling, ride sharing, or anything similar is strictly a private arrangement among the drivers and riders. All Sierra Club outings are free and open to the public unless otherwise stated. Many participants make donations to support the Sierra Club. Participants will be required to sign a Liability Waiver (no need to print it, we'll have one for you to sign. View it at: http://content.sierraclub.org/outings/sites/content.sierraclub.org.outings/files/forms/local-outings-individual_waiver.pdf). We lead fun and educational outings to enjoy, explore and protect our inspiring natural resources. We have outings across Washington that use different Meetups.

    What we're about

    Hiking, backpacking, bicycling, skiing, snowshoeing, paddling, birding, trail maintenance and more!

    We lead fun and educational outings to explore nature; to showcase areas that are being preserved; and to maintain trails. It's even more fun if you come along.

    Our MeetUp offers local outings led by Sierra Club Outings Leaders, and we announce other Sierra Club events and activities, including meetings, presentations, and occasionally an event from an allied organization.

    Outings Leaders are typically Sierra Club volunteers, and the range of outings is as diverse as all of our leaders’ interests. Each of our Outings Leaders has a passion for the outdoors and a willingness to share their expertise with others. Regardless of your level of experience, you may choose from a variety of outings which reflect the diversity of our Leaders’ interests.

    We welcome Sierra Club members and non-members in to join us. If you are interested in Sierra Club Membership, please join at www.SierraClub.org/WA (http://www.sierraclub.org/WA) We’d love to have you!
