About The Delaware Chapter
The Sierra Club dates back to 1892 and is the oldest and largest environmental advocacy organization in North America. Our mission is to explore, enjoy, and protect the planet. Since 1992, the Delaware Chapter has blazed trails to protect the environment and to provide opportunities to enjoy and explore the natural beauty of our state.
As a volunteer-run grassroots organization, we are working to protect our air and water quality and supporting state legislation and policies to reduce the negative impacts from climate change on those precious resources now and in the future.
New Year, Even Bigger Mission
2023 was a huge success for the Delaware Chapter. We saw a huge growth in our volunteer capacity, the number of actions taken, and in our ability to fund the great work we are doing throughout the state!
Check out our newest blog post that we drew up to help highlight some of the amazing work we were able to accomplish behind the scenes that folks may not know about! We also talk about some of what you can look forward to in 2024.

Protecting Air Quality in Delaware
We have taken great steps in our state to clean up and protect our air, water, and soils, but there are constant efforts to roll back that progress. That is why the Delaware Chapter is always hard at work to both support policies to clean up and protect our air, water, and soils and stop any policies that threaten our state's ability to protect public health and the environment. To learn more about these efforts and more, attend our Climate & Energy Public Meetings
Securing Renewable Energy Resources
Offshore wind energy alone has the ability to cover up to 30% of our energy deeds as a State if we do it right and we do it now. The Delaware Chapter is a member of People for Offshore Wind Energy Resources (POWER), a coalition of people working to secure an offshore wind project for the First State. We are also pushing to ensure everyone has the right and ability to install solar at home or subscribe to a community solar project in Delaware to access the power of the sun as well!
Amplifying Environmental Justice Efforts
We strive to amplify the work of environmental justice advocates fighting for the right to clean air, water, and land in Delaware. We work with community members and organizations to improve the permitting process, address pollution in communities, advocate for smart and equitable land use, reduced energy burdens, and more. To learn more, attend our Environmental Justice Public Meetings, email the EJ Chair Willie Scott or Environmental Justice Associate Organizer Marissa McClenton.
