The Piedmont Group endeavors to fulfill the Sierra Club's mission “to explore, enjoy, and protect the wild places of the earth…"

Our group serves Charlottesville City and the counties of Albemarle, Buckingham, Fluvanna, Greene, Louisa, Madison, Nelson, Orange, and Rappahannock in central Virginia.  We currently have over 1,500 members.

Leadership of our group is the responsibility of an Executive Committee (EXCOM) elected by the general membership.  The EXCOM meets every month in Charlottesville.  Any member in good standing may be a candidate for election to the EXCOM.

The Piedmont Group sponsors six to ten programs a year to educate the public about important environmental issues, and/or expand one's knowledge of the natural world.  Our members work at information booths at local festivals, and advocate for a healthy community. Check the Activities Calendar to view upcoming events, meetings and outings. 

To get email notifications of our activities, join the Piedmont Group's e-mail list.

Sierra Club members often meet with government leaders to lobby for legislation and we support candidates for public office who have a solid environmental record.

Our outings leaders organize hikes on local trails and in the nearby Blue Ridge Mountains.  We are seeking outings leaders to lead events. Please sign up on the Piedmont Group's volunteer link to be an outings leader.

The Sierra Club provides opportunities to enjoy the great outdoors, make friends, and advocate for the natural environment.  Please join us!
