The Sierra Club is an active and fun environmental organization. Come join us for hikes, outings, art openings, talks by experts, beer, volunteer opportunities, and great conversation about environmental issues! There are tons of ways to get involved with this group.
Come join us at the Pueblo Montano Open Space as we partner with the Albuquerque Open Space Division to pickup trash, maintain trails and celebrate our amazing open spaces. Meet at 8:45 a.m. at the designated open space area. Bring water, sunscreen, gloves, hat and a snack, and wear closed-toed shoes. This is a great activity for families with children. Contact leader no later than May 2nd to RSVP. Terry Owen,[masked], [masked]
