Buena Vista Group

The Buena Vista Group (BVG) is Bakersfield's local Sierra Club group. As one of four groups of the Kern-Kaweah Chapter, BVG serves the Southern San Joaquin Valley, Kern Valley, and Tehachapi areas. BVG meets monthly in Bakersfield, California, and participates in the discussion of a variety of local issues from preservation of the Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail for hikers and equestrians to protecting people’s health from pollution.  



Sierra Club members and the public are invited to the Buena Vista Group Breakfast and Program on the first Saturday of the month [we sometimes go on a hiatus in July].  The programs are educational and expand on Sierra Club’s mission to Enjoy, Explore, and Protect the planet. More specific information about the programs can be found in the Kern-Kaweah Chapter newsletter, the bi-monthly [sierraclub.org] Roadrunner [sierraclub.org].


Battery Recycling at BVG Meetings – We're not supposed to toss household batteries in the garbage can anymore.   Bring us your old household batteries: lithium ion, nickel metal hydride, NiCad, small sealed lead-acid batteries and from cordless & cell phones, power tools, laptops.  We are delivering hazardous waste to the Bakersfield Special Waste Facility, 4951 Standard Street, (southwest corner of Standard and Foster Streets) in Bakersfield. We trust them to properly dispose of it. https://www.kernpublicworks.com/services/solid-waste/hazardous-waste/residential-hazardous-waste [kernpublicworks.com]
