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.

Sierra Club Florida Unveils 2016 Legislative Platform
Sierra Club Florida is working hard to stop polluting legislation from taking hold before the start of the new session in January. Learn more about the bills we're carefully monitoring, and what green legislation to support. From cleaner beaches to electric cars, together we can chart a new vision for Florida in 2016. Click here to see our 2016 platform.
We are planning to go forward with relationship building with state legislators. This is a non confrontational process where we get volunteers to meet periodically with their respective state legislators to communicate Sierra priorities, find out what enviro issues they care about, and during session, ask them to vote our way on proposed legislation. We will pair folks up to work in pairs with each legislator. This is a long term process to build a relationship with them, credibility and hopefully influence. There will be a webinar in a couple of weeks as training and will provide information on priorities and talking points.
Please contact Janet Stanko 904 208 1341 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Sierra Club solidly supports the Floridians for Solar Energy Choice petition and amendment.
WHAT: The Solar Energy amendment: Help us get petition signatures to qualify the amendment for the November 2016 ballot. We are asking you to volunteer to do two 2-hour shifts at a location near you. (Actually we think you will get such a sense of satisfaction and really like it that you might do more than two shifts.) We will pair you with another person so you can get a sense of comradery.
WHY: Global climate change and Florida's vulnerability to sea level rise
WHEN: Between now and 12/31/15
WHERE: Libraries and events near you
HOW: See Take Action to learn more, see the schedule, and choose your times to help.
