About the Sierra Club

The Sierra Club was founded in 1892 with the mission to explore, enjoy and protect the planet.

By visiting our website, you are joining 2.4 million of your friends and neighbors that want:

A safe and healthy community in which to live;

Smart energy solutions to combat global warming; and,

An enduring legacy for America's wild places.

Since 1892, the Sierra Club has been working to protect communities, wild places, and the planet itself. We are the largest and most influential grassroots environmental organization in the United States. And our founder, John Muir, appears on the back of the California quarter.
