The Susquehanna Group of the Sierra Club is an entirely volunteer organization consisting of all of the members of the national Sierra Club who reside in the counties of Broome, Chenango, and Delaware counties, and part of Tioga and Otsego counties.
Adjoining groups (clockwise from south) are: Northeastern, PA; Finger Lakes, Iroquois, Mid-Hudson and Ramapo-Catskill.
All Sierra Club groups in New York State are part of the Atlantic Chapter of the Sierra Club.
It is the mission of the Susquehanna Group to foster (within its territorial limits) the mission of the Sierra Club, as stated in its bylaws:
To explore, enjoy, and protect the wild places of the earth; to practice and promote the responsible use of the earth's ecosystems and resources; to educate and enlist humanity to protect and restore the quality of the natural and human environment; and to use all lawful means to carry out these objectives.
We are funded in part by a portion of the membership dues paid to the national Sierra Club. Most of our financial resources, however, are raised through our own fund-raising efforts, primarily the sale of Sierra Club calendars. Our greatest expense is printing and mailing our newsletter, the Susquehanna Sierran, which keeps our members informed of group activities.
We hold monthly programs for members and the public from September through June. Topics and speakers are local, regional and national.
Susquehanna Group schedules many activities each year. Some have serious purposes such as to investigate wetlands problems, while others are simply to enjoy the outdoors together.
