The Rochester Regional Group
The Sierra Club welcomes all those concerned about the need for a healthy environment. If you are concerned about breathable air, drinkable & swimmable water, the dangers of pesticides, or preservation of our wild open spaces, won't you please join us?
As a member, you will receive Sierra Magazine (the national magazine of the Sierra Club), the state chapter's newsletter, Sierra Atlantic, and your local group's newsletter. Membership will keep you informed of the many social programs, conservation and outings activities and educational efforts sponsored by the state chapter and the local groups, as well as those of the national organization
Our educational and lobbying efforts are addressed to public officials and legislators. We make our voices heard through volunteer lobbying, grass roots organizing, letters, postcards and telephone calls from our members, and, as a last resort, litigation.
Our efforts have resulted in creation of a state Environmental Protection Fund, stronger protection and expansion of Adirondack Park and Catskill Forest Preserve, efforts to establish an Oswegatchie Canoe Wilderness in the Adirondack Park, establishment of the right to recreational navigation of rivers lying within private lands, preservation of much of Sterling Forest near NYC, important Environmental Justice initiatives in New York City and Albany, grass-roots efforts to protect the Hudson River from the perils of PCB's, and a major effort for stronger protection of New York City's environmentally-sensitive watershed lands and wetlands.
Why is the Sierra Club so effective? There are some 650,000 members nationwide and 32,000 statewide organized into an informed activist network.
We have up-to-date information on the issues; we work with legislators on Federal level, as well as on the local level. We have our headquarters in San Francisco, our main lobbying offices in Washington, DC, and staff working in state capitals around the nation.
There's a Sierra Club group near you. For social gatherings, for informative educational programs, for outings, for volunteer conservation work, please join now. Just click here.
