Explore the Planet—especially your own “backyard”!
We in Placer County have been gifted with many miles of beautiful, peaceful, educational, and delightful trail “get aways.”
The scene below is along the Middle Fork of the American River.
As the Sierra Club’s founder said, “Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul.”
Can you guess where this was taken from? Hint: Less than five miles from Auburn, CA....
Enjoy Placer Group's "backyard" and help us protect them!
What is the "Executive Committee" of the Placer Group Sierra Club?
It is the elected six-member committee that votes on Placer Group issues. You, as a Sierra Club member, are welcome to attend Placer Group Member Meetings (aka “ExCom”), usually held on the first Wednesday of each month, currently at Denny’s at 1800 Auburn Ravine Rd in Auburn at 7 pm. Even if you cannot vote, as a member your opinion is welcome and appreciated. Contact Marilyn for more info and/or to confirm meetings.
