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.

Programs:
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. 

Outings:
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.

What's Happening

2015 Legislative Wrap Up

See a summary of the Florida Legislature actions on emvironmental issues written by our lobbyist, Dave Cullen.

Action Alerts

Oppose Seismic Airgun Testing in the Atlantic Ocean

Contact Jacksonville City Council Members And Ask Them to Pass Resolution 2015-350 Opposing Seismic Airgun Testing In The Atlantic Ocean. 

Marine life, especially dolphins and whales, depend on their sensitive hearing to communicate, find food, socialize, mate, and ultimately, survive. But right now Big Oil and Gas is pushing hard to conduct seismic air gun testing to search for oil and gas off the East Coast, a process that can turn 300,000 square miles of Atlantic Ocean into a blast zone. This area stretches from Delaware to Florida. See the Take Action section.

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.
