About Us

Welcome to the Sierra Club’s Lone Star Chapter! We are the oldest grassroots environmental organization in Texas. We believe our open spaces, clean water, and natural resources should be protected so that current and future generations may enjoy them. In addition to our state chapter office in Austin, we are blessed with several regional groups in Texas that provide wonderful opportunities to explore, enjoy, and protect the state’s natural wonders.

The Lone Star Chapter includes more than 27,000 members throughout the state.* 

The Lone Star Chapter’s conservation priorities are:

  • Clean Air & Water
  • Smart Energy Solutions
  • Texas Land & Wildlife Legacy
  • Water for People & the Environment
  • Responsible Transportation Choices
  • Stable Climate

We accomplish our goals through direct and grassroots legislative and administrative lobbying, education, outings, litigation, and electing environmental champions to local, state, and federal office.

The Lone Star Chapter values diversity and promotes environmental education and environmental justice in our efforts to fulfill our mission to explore, enjoy, and protect our Texas natural heritage and to protect public health.

We want Texas to remain a healthy and vibrant place to live. We believe that the health of the human world is inextricably linked to the health of the natural world.
