About Us

Badlands National Park

The South Dakota Chapter of the Sierra Club was established in 1972 when Sam Clauson organized a group to stop a proposed tramway that would have taken passengers to the top of Black Elk Peak (now in the federally protected Black Elk Wilderness). Sam’s activities were the birth of the Sierra Club Chapter in South Dakota.

Today our group fights for clean water, advocates sustainable agriculture, protects the Black Hills National Forest, and lobbies for conservation and environmental legislation.
