Sierra Club founder John Muir took people to the mountains in 1901 because he knew that would convince them to save valuable wild places. We still “explore, enjoy, and protect the wild places of the earth,” through thousands of local, national, and international outings every year, activities that have helped shape wild areas conservation across the country.
Our outings are open to members and non-members. No fees are charged, except for expenses like park entry costs, camping fees or shared meals. Participants are required to sign a standard liability waiver. Sierra Club volunteers lead our outings. You will learn about local conservation efforts while enjoying the great outdoors.
