About Us

Welcome to the Toiyabe Chapter, Sierra Club's regional team of staff and activists covering Nevada and the Eastern Sierra from the Tahoe basin south through Death Valley. We are the region's largest and most powerful volunteer, grassroots conservation organization representing more than 40,000 members and supporters locally, and roughly 4 million members and supporters nationwide. Explore this website to see our opportunities to take action either on the Chapter or Group level.  Visit one of our 4 groups to see about attending a local outing or check out our Great Basin Peaks outings for the latest peak climbing opportunities.  We invite you to join us in protecting our public lands, wildlife refuges, forests, parks and wilderness for all. Become a member or renew your membership today. We welcome your donations to support our important local work. We invite you to join our executive committee leadership. Thank you for all that you do to protect Nevada and eastern California's environment.
