It is important for a conservation organization like the Sierra Club to focus on specific issues. By having national, state and local entities working in conjunction, we can best attack local and regional issues with our grassroots activism. You can energize our efforts! If you would like to be involved, contact us.  

Local Conservation Issues

A few of the conservation issues of concern to our Group's members include Ice Age Trail work around the Chippewa Moraine, Lower Chippewa River habitat preservation, power plant siting, ORV damage, municipal incinerators, smart growth, light pollution, Eau Claire River habitat protection, landfill over-usage, conservation farming, Hoffman Hills protection, ethanol plants, and wetland preservation. To learn more about these issues, or to volunteer to help with our campaigns, please contact us today.
