Welcome to our Group's New Website
Please be patient as we finish updating the site with latest information. This site is for our members and our local community, and produced by our members. It is an important vehicle to connect with our local community around issues we care deeply about. We are in need of volunteers to help maintain the site and add content. The new site is easy to edit but you can help by just providing content that can be dropped in. If interested in helping and/or contributing content, send a note to Peter Gorr at email@example.com.
Northwest Cook County Group of the Illinois Sierra Club
The NWCCG is a local group of the Illinois Chapter of the Sierra Club. The Sierra Club is America's oldest, largest and most influential grassroots environmental organization.

The boundaries for our group include: Arlington Heights, Barrington, Bartlett, Des Plaines, Elk Grove Village, Hoffman Estates, Mt Prospect, Palatine, Park Ridge, Rolling Meadows, Schaumburg, South Barrington, Streamwood and Wheeling. We are an all-volunteer Group of caring people who enjoy getting outdoors, learning about how to care for our fragile world, and influencing behavior change through our own actions, effective communication, and advancing positive environmental policies and practices. Please consider joining us on an outing or attending one of our programs or events. When you join Sierra Club, you are automatically made a member of the local Group so please drop in and see the additional benefits we offer.
