Every tree hugger and National Park Geek should join and donate to the Sierra Club. The Sierra Club was founded in 1892 with John Muir as it's first president. Their mission has continued to be strong and on task. The Sierra Club is on the front line daily fighting to protect our environment, parks and natural places from the seashores to the mountain tops. They are the nation's largest and most influential grassroots environmental organization and are not afraid to tell the true stories of what is happening to our environment. They have the resources to make action happen but only with the support of park and environmental stewards like you. Please consider the Sierra Club on your list of charities that are doing it right. You can also snag some cool stuff at their online store for those special gifts.
Please help when you can either with one of these great organizations or your own. The environment, the planet, the parks and our future generations are counting on us to be good stewards today.
