Welcome to the Northeast Florida Sierra Club!
The Sierra Club is a national organization dedicated to Enjoying, Exploring and Protecting the Planet. We are the oldest, largest, and most influential grassroots environmental organization in the United States.
Our local Northeast Florida Group organizes and participates in outdoor adventures, environmental education, and local environmental activities. We also lobby our local and state government for pro-environmental policy and legislation. We have over 1,200 members in Duval, St. Johns, and northeast Clay Counties in Florida.
In Jacksonville, we meet on the second Monday of each month, 7 pm (6:30 for social time).
In Ponte Vedra Beach, we meet on the first Monday of each month, 6:00 pm.
We conduct hikes, kayak trips, and other outdoor activities several times each month.
Check the calendar below or check our Meetup site for program and outing details.

This notice is for Sierra members who have recreated on public lands in the Volusia and Brevard County areas. Have you visited this area in the last 5 years?
The privately owned Farmton tract in Brevard and Volusia includes a federal/state mitigation bank, and we need your help to protect the bank and nearby public lands. Sierra has filed a lawsuit to object to the Army Corps of Engineers' lack of protection of this land from development, and we are compiling a list of Sierra members who have recreated in this area to document our legal standing in the litigation.
Here's a recent article about the litigation http://tinyurl.com/ktdxfr6
If you have you recreated in lands near the Farmton property we want to hear from you if possible by Friday May 8th.
Have you recreated in any of these areas in the last 5 years?

Protect Florida Lands
Due to the special legislative session there is still time to act!! We must fully fund Florida Forever to acquire critical lands to help us save and restore great places like Florida's iconic springs, the Green Swamp and the Apalachicola River and Bay. See the Take Action section.
