Unique among environmental organizations, the Sierra Club is run by and for volunteers. We are truly a grassroots group of citizen activists committed to environmental stewardship and protecting our environment today and for future generations. We work on national and state levels, of course, but we are also focused on local communities, and our effectiveness and success is based on volunteer action and leadership.
There are so many fun and meaningful ways to get involved in the Chapter's vital work to protect Maine's environment. Volunteer opportunities range from lending a hand in the office (database entry, mailings, etc...), tabling at events, participating or leading an outing, writing a letter to the editor, organizing a film night, contacting legislators about environmental issues, helping to elect pro-environmental politicians, organize rallies and other events, and joining one of our teams.
Sierra Club strongly values and supports our volunteers. Please see below for the various ways to become involved. Contact our office or call us at 207-761-5616 for more information.
