Welcome to the Susquehanna Group

Please join us at one of our outings, meetings, or events. Our monthly meetings are held on the Third Tuesday of the month—except July & August at 7:30 pm at the Central United Methodist Church, 17 Nanticoke Ave, Endicott, NY.  We sponsor activities to inform Sierra Club members and the general public about local, regional, state, and national environmental issues.  The Susquehanna Group covers Broome, Chenango, and Delaware counties, as well as parts of Tioga and Otsego counties, in New York State.

Our next meeting is October 20 and Kathy Cronin and Scott Lauffer will be making a presentation on "Southern Utah and a Bit Beyond"

It would take years to fully explore all that Utah has to offer. Kathy Cronin and Scott Lauffer spent 5 months in 2009 and 6 weeks in 2014 volunteering with the National Park Service at Bryce Canyon National Park.  Join them and explore the otherworldly terrain of southern Utah's public lands - canyons, mountains, mesas and more - with a few spots just beyond thrown in for good measure.

"It's Our Right to Know!": Take Action for GMO Labeling

The GMO industry and food manufacturers want to keep us in the dark about which foods contain genetically modified organisms (GMOs), but we have a chance to make them disclose this information by labeling the foods we eat and drink. Contact your elected officials: we want to know what is in our food; we want GMO labeling!  Visit http://www.foodandwaterwatch.org/food/genetically-engineered-foods/make-ge-labels-the-law/to learn more.

There are a variety of ways to get involved (contact or meet with elected officials, go on an outing, write a letter to the editor, attend a community meeting, talk with your neighbors, etc) and a wide diversity of issues to work on (fracking, agriculture, energy, translation, water protection, and so much more)-- so get active now!
