About Us

Founded by conservationist John Muir in 1892, the Sierra Club is now the nation's largest and most influential grassroots environmental organization -- with over 3.7 million members and supporters. Alabama Sierra Club’s 3000+ members have helped fight for clean water, for Forever Wild and to make Alabama a cleaner, safer place for all of us.  We’ve forged alliances with other environmental groups across the state and region. We’ve provided funds to reach school children and create political action to protect Alabama’s wilderness. And we lead hikes, both to educate the general public on the many things Alabama  has to offer and to simply get outside and enjoy the beauty of nature.

The Alabama Chapter of the Sierra Club is comprised of the Cahaba, Coosa, Mobile Bay, Montgomery, North Alabama and West Alabama Groups and holds events throughout the year, the largest of these being our annual retreat each fall.
