Explore

"Between every two pine trees there is a door leading to a new way of life."

-- John Muir, founder, Sierra Club

Since the founding of the Sierra Club, one of the key tenets of our organization is to promote the exploration of the wild and natural world.

No one will protect what they do not value, no one will value what they do not know, and you will never know the wild unless you explore it!

 

In the spirit of exploration we host monthly outings via the countless parks, preserves, trails, and waterways of our state. We hope you will join us!

ENJOY

"Keep close to Nature's heart... and break clear away, once in a while, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean."

-- John Muir, founder, Sierra Club

Who will protect nature if it is not enjoyed and valued?

 

We believe enjoyment by all who experience Nature develops interest and desire to preserve and protect Connecticut and its environment. May it also foster a spirit of goodwill and fellowship among our members.

“Any fool can destroy trees ... It took more than three thousand years to make some of the trees in these Western woods -- trees that are still standing in perfect strength and beauty, waving and singing in the mighty forests of the Sierra. Through all the wonderful, eventful centuries ... God has cared for these trees, saved them from drought, disease, avalanches, and a thousand straining, leveling tempests and floods; but he cannot save them from fools -- only Uncle Sam can do that."  

-- John Muir, founder, Sierra Club.

Our organization understands all too well the role that government plays in environmental conservation.

At the state level, the Sierra Club of Connecticut does all it can legally to protect our state and our fellow citizens by lobbying our local government. Our goals are to guide our representatives to make the right decisions pertaining to a clean and healthy environment, natural spaces and clean energy.

 

We employ vast experience with our senior volunteer lobbyist,we organize major rallies and marches on the capitol when necessary, we host days specifically to visit the legislators' office to lobby for and against upcoming legislation, and we inform our members and the public when and how to take action to protect and preserve what they hold most dear.
