The Maryland Chapter of Sierra Club always needs volunteers! Our organization is different from many other environmental groups in that most of the work is done by volunteers, supported by a small number of paid staff. We want to protect the environment in Maryland and we can't do it without you.

If you want to stay close to home, contact your local Maryland Sierra Club Group.

You can also join a 1 hour volunteer orientation (posted on the Calendar)

Also, here are some specific positions that we currently need:

Conservation Committee Members

Secretary: The Secretary serves as the note taker and record keeper for the Conservation Committee. They shall provide written agendas and meeting minutes for all public meetings, aid the Conservation Chair in the generation of work plans and deliverables, and ensure that these and other relevant documents are properly distributed and archived.
Organizing Lead: The Organizing Lead is responsible for facilitating collaboration across Teams, Groups, and Staff and is responsible for events, meetings, and gatherings to create the spaces our leaders need.
