What we're about

Meet others "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 environment, and to use all lawful means to carry out these objectives."

We meet on the second Thursday of the odd numbered months, i.e. January, March, May, July, September and November at 7pm at Culver City Veterans Memorial Auditorium in the Uruapan room, 4117 Overland Ave., Culver City 90230.

Plenty of free lighted parking. Refreshments are served and there is always a lively talk accompanying the program. Feel free to bring a friend; all meetings are open to both members and non-members of the Sierra Club.

Repair Cafe (to fix broken household items)

1450 Ocean Ave

Do you have a broken household item? A toaster that stopped working? Broken lamp? Instead of buying a new one, come to the Westside Repair Café and get it fixed for free. Why? Because it’s good for the environment. It reduces unnecessary consumerism, helps preserve resources, reduces waste, reduces carbon emissions and other pollutants involved in extraction, manufacturing and transportation of goods, and it saves you money! Volunteer too if you can.
