The Sierra Club is a national, member-supported environmental organization that seeks to influence public policy in Washington D.C., in the state capitals, and locally through public education and grass-roots political action.

As one of five Groups within the Tennessee Chapter of the Sierra Club, the Cherokee Group is based in Chattanooga and represents Bledsoe, Bradley, Franklin, Hamilton, Marion, Meigs, McMinn, Polk, Rhea and Sequatchie counties in Southeast Tennessee. Our mission is to explore, enjoy and protect the planet for our families and our future. We speak for the trees!

We are committed to welcoming all members of the community.  We offer year-round outings, monthly informative programs that range from experts in environmental issues to entertaining speakers who have explored our world.  Join us in tackling important local and regional conservation issues.

See the About Us page for more about who we are and what we do.

What's Happening This Month?

Potluck Party.  Special Welcome to our New Members - You're invited to a Party!

Sunday, January 10, 2016  5:00pm - 8.00pm

Audubon Acres Visitor Center, 900 Sanctuary Road, Chattanooga, 37424 (the new building just inside their gate, in East Brainerd, off Gunbarrel Rd)

And all our members are invited as well!! Bring friends and a covered dish to share, we'll supply drinks, utensils, plates, etc. and the Hursts always donate wine! Come start the New Year with people who share the same interests and dreams for our environment as you.   Before we eat, we'll have time to walk to the South Chickamauga Creek bridge and explore the mini-museum inside the Visitors Center, tracing the human habitation of the property back 1400 & 1500's. Then our supper, while enjoying a roaring fire in the fireplace. If you haven't been to a Sierra activity in a while, make this your first of 2016. And if you haven't been at all, jump in here! We'll start gathering at 5 pm Sunday evening. And if you can't bring a covered dish, come anyway, there's always enough for all. Fun and fellowship! Mark your calendars now.
