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 Outside” and sign up for one of our many outings across the state.


 Mark your calandar and set the date for the SC Chapter Fall Retreat & SierraFest Weekend, September  9-11, 2016  at Camp Buckhorn located at Paris Mountain State Park just six miles from downtown Greenville, SC.

This facility  also includes 10-rustic cabins located near the main lodge. Modern restrooms and showers with a full kitchen are located inside the lodge. The cabins will accomodate a total of 38 people. The annual retreat is a weekend gathering of club members and guests from the different groups across the state.
