Toiyabe Chapter

Welcome to the Sierra Club Toiyabe Chapter

In the News!

Tobi Tyler, a member of the Tahoe Area Group, has written an op-ed in the Reno Gazette Journal about microplastics in the Reno-Tahoe area, and policy mechanisms for protecting Lake Tahoe. She calls on the Tahoe Regional Planning Agency to ban certain plastics in the Tahoe Basin.

Bari Levinson, Co-Chair of the Toiyabe Chapter Legislative Committee, has written an OpEd that was published in the Indy.  It offers one way to incentivize NV Energy to support more distributed solar (rooftop and community) called Performance Based Regulations. We need to educate our legislators and the public about this important option in order to further solar development on buildings rather than in the desert.

We are YOUR LOCAL activists in Nevada, Lake Tahoe, and the Eastern Sierra, fighting on your behalf on the following issues:

  • Protecting public lands, wildlife and their habitats, and our region's scarce waters from speculation and development
  • Electing and encouraging environmental champions at all levels to pursue 100% renewable energy, community solar, protecting Nevada's water law, better infrastructure for electric vehicles and mass transit, and walkable, healthier, climate-resilient communities instead of sprawl
  • Advocating for smart-growth, open space protection, and transportation that makes sense in regional planning efforts
  • Protecting our region's scarce and essential waters from "water-mining" (using water faster than it recharges), commodification and pollution
  • Read more about all of the issues we cover

We're always recruiting, training, and empowering volunteer activists to build a democratic movement in pursuit of these issues and more! If you want to volunteer to lend at hand, let us know here. 

And of course, we introduce people to the wonders of nature through our regional outings programs. Scroll to the bottom of the page for a calendar of events and outings throughout the Chapter. If you want to become an outings leader, learn more here.
