Welcome to the Sierra Nevada Group!  

The Group is a regional unit of the Sierra Club that serves members in Nevada, Yuba and Sierra counties.  Most of our meetings are held in Nevada City/Grass Valley about 50 miles east of Sacramento.  Our 1100 members are interested in conservation and enjoyment of wilderness and the natural world.  The Group organizes hikes and other outdoor activities; it also provides focused response to environmental issues in the region and is operated entirely by volunteers.

Book Study on This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. The Climate by Naomi Klein

Sponsored by the Nevada County Climate Change Coalition

“What is really preventing us from putting out the fire that is threatening to burn down our collective house? We have not done the things that are necessary to lower emissions because these things fundamentally conflict with deregulated capitalism, the reigning ideology for the entire period we have been struggling to find a way out of this crisis.”
