Mission Statement

 Sierra Club members and supporters are more than 1.3 million of your friends and neighbors. Inspired by nature, we work together to protect our communities and the planet. The Sierra Club is America's oldest, largest and most influential grassroots environmental organization. Mission Statement: 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 those objectives.

"Everybody Needs Beauty As Well As Bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul alike." - Sierra Club Founder John Muir, 1912.

MISSION STATEMENT: The Sierra Club's purpose is 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; and 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 support the right to a clean and healthful environment for all people including for native people - the rights to democracy, to participate, to equal protection, to know, to sustainable environmental benefits, to equity, and to generational equity. We support an end to pollution. We support the precautionary principle - polluters should bear the burden of proof that their activities are safe. Safeguards should be put in place when there is threat of serious or irreversible damage.


THE SIERRA CLUB WORKS to protect the environment through legislative and grassroots efforts. The Sierra Club is unique among environmental organizations because it is run by grassroots volunteers. Almost all the work that is done is accomplished by dedicated volunteers rather than paid staff. This makes the Sierra Club one of the most effective environmental organizations in the country.

THE SIERRA CLUB ENCOURAGES PEOPLE to get out into nature and promotes appreciation of the natural environment. You may be interested in helping lead or attend stream cleanups, invasive plant removals, or hikes in areas that need protection. In the office there's plenty of work to do including data entry, computer work, member outreach, phones, news clippings, media work, mailings and organizing. Around the state you can attend hearings, meetings, and demonstrations, speak with your public officials, table at festivals, or participate in petition drives. In the nine groups in Maryland and with the Student Sierra Coalition, there are various leadership and committee positions available and niches for a variety of special skills or expertise.

Sierrans are working on critical environmental issues all around the state. Please call the office to let us know where you are located, what kind of work you may be interested in doing, or to sign yourself into the office volunteer schedule. There are some exciting times ahead!

For information or to arrange internships please call and send a resume with a short letter of your interests. Hope to hear from you soon!
