The South Carolina Chapter of the Sierra Club was founded in 1978 and is the largest grassroots conservation organization in the state. We believe that the survival of South Carolina’s cultural heritage is intricately weaved into the land. As a conservation group that is committed to the mission to “Explore, Enjoy, and Protect” South Carolina, we work to protect our communities by advocating for our rivers, our lands, clean air and showing people the beautiful places that make our state a great place to live. Our conservation priorities are listed above under the “Issues” link. Take time to explore the work we’re doing and how we’re protecting South Carolina’s ecological treasures. And make sure you follow link “Get Outdoors” and sign up for one of our many outings across the state.
