STRATEGY MEETINGS: April 28th, 2015,  May 19th, 2015  and June 16th, 2015 

Everyone is welcome at local issues & business meetings. 

Meetings are usually held at Lucky Bamboo Restaurant,  5855 Charlotte Avenue, but there may be times we meet elsewhere. If you are not a regular attendee, please contact Betsy at 668-1977 or in case the meeting location has changed.

Come a bit early order dinner because we start the meeting at 6:30, and please contact Betsy at 668-1977 to let her know you're coming. 

We meet in a private room towards the back of the restaurant.  Tell them you’re looking for the Sierra Club. 
We look forward to seeing you! 

Who we are - What we do

Welcome to the Middle Tennessee Chapter of the Sierra Club! We are an active local group, made up of volunteers dedicated to exploring, preserving and sharing the beauty of our nation's and Tennessee’s wild spaces.

Nationwide, Sierra Club members and supporters are made up of more than 1.3 million people, just like you. We are the largest and most influential grassroots environmental organization in the United States. Come dream, discuss and discover with us. Together we can make a real difference for today and into the future.


We are outdoor enthusiasts, exploring and protecting all that Tennessee has to offer. Together we host group hikes, floats, informative monthly programs and group outings and provide our community with environmental education programs, legislative support, and opportunities to learn from and share our love of the outdoors.

To be added to our e-list and receive a monthly calendar, notices of local activities, issues, meetings and other events, email Sarah.
