"When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the universe" John Muir

About the Sierra Club:

John Muir co-founded the Sierra Club in 1892 to share his love of nature. Since then, the Club has matured into the nation's largest and most influential environmental organization. The Club’s mission is to explore, enjoy, and protect the wild places of the earth; to practice and promote the responsible use of the earth's resources; and to educate and enlist humanity to protect and restore the quality of the environment.


The Mother Lode Chapter serves 24 counties of northern California and offers a variety of outings, programs and conservation action. The Sierra Club Singles is an activity section of the Chapter that welcomes all people over 18 years of age who are interested in conservation. Our activities are NOT limited to singles or to Sierra Club members.
