Mission Statement

Founded in 1892, the Sierra Club is the oldest and largest environmental advocacy organization in North America. Our mission is to:
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.
