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 objects to removing Planning Commission chair

Carl Hiaasen writes for the Miami Herald – “Most embezzlers try to conceal their thefts, but not in Tallahassee. The looting of Florida’s Amendment One conservation funds took place in broad daylight, orchestrated by two poker-faced swindlers named Andy Gardiner and Steve Crisafulli. Gardiner is president of the Senate. Crisafulli is speaker of the House. Remember their names, because they ripped you off big-time- and it will happen again next year, if they think they can get away with it.” Read Brazen theft of our Amendment 1 bucks (From the Florida Conservation Coalition)
