Northern Kentucky Group is one of 6 groups in the Kentucky Chapter of Sierra Club. We are your neighbors and friends in Boone, Bracken, Campbell, Carroll, Fleming, Gallatin, Grant, Harrison, Kenton, Mason, Pendleton and Robertson counties. Our group was formed in 1982. We hold free monthly informative meetings, support local efforts to protect natural spaces, promote public awareness of important environmental issues in our area, participate in community gardens and local environmental cleanups, and offer an “outings” program of local nature hikes, trail service, bike hikes, paddling trips and more.
Kentucky Chapter’s Bluegrass Group covers counties south of us. Greater Louisville Group is to our southwest. Miami Group in southwest Ohio is to our north, part of the Ohio Chapter. Winding Waters Group in southeast Indiana is our Sierra Club neighbor to our northwest, part of the Hoosier Chapter. Each group is led by local volunteers who develop and run programs of local interest and concern.
Sierra Club is a nationwide organization founded in 1892 by John Muir, a famous naturalist and conservationist who helped inspire President Theodore Roosevelt's conservation programs like the establishment of Yosemite National Park and our first National Monuments. Muir was Sierra Club's first president and held that office until he died in 1914. Sierra Club went on to encourage the establishment and expansion of our National Parks and National Wilderness Preservation systems. We also have a long history of advocating for less pollution and environmental degradation. It’s our mission to EXPLORE, ENJOY & PROTECT our planet.
