Michigan Groups

Sierra Club groups  are run by local volunteers who host educational programs, outings, political and conservation activities, and general meetings. Group activities are tied to current environmental issues important to the community and family health. Sierra Club outings and group programs are open to the public -- everyone is welcome and you don't have to belong to that group to participate. 

To get involved in your local Sierra Club group or learn more about outings, please contact one of the volunteer leaders in your area. If you live in an area that does not have a local group and you’re interested in starting one, please email Contact.Us@michigan.sierraclub.org.
