Full Outings Calendar
Inspiring Connections Outdoors (ICO) Parks4Kids Program
San Diego ICO is an all-volunteer program of the Sierra Club dedicated to providing outdoor experiences to low-income youth who would not otherwise have the opportunity to actively engage in nature. San Diego ICO has created a fundraising page in the Parks4Kids Program, which is sponsored by The Outdoor Foundation. It operates a bit like a GoFundMe page (but Parks4Kids does not take any of the amount donated). San Diego is seeking $7,500 to provide funding for 30 hiking and 5 camping trips during June 2016 – May 2017. Make a tax-deductible donation HERE.
Marching for Women’s and Human Rights
Hundreds of Chapter members and supporters joined with tens of thousands to march for women’s rights, our safety, our health, our families and our communities. The march was held the day after the inauguration of Donald Trump and signaled to the Trump administration that we are gravely concerned about the impacts of climate change and the implications of an Administration that promotes climate skepticism, advancement of fossil fuels, an extractive economy, racism, bigotry and sexist oppression.

Sierra Club Executive Director Michael Brune: “On April 29th, it’s going to be much clearer to Donald Trump that he won’t drag America or the world backwards on climate without the fight of his life. Our planet is in crisis, and voices from around the nation must and will be heard.”
A coalition of environmental, social justice and human rights groups are joining together to let our voices be heard.
Join Sierra Club San Diego in marching to stop the Trump administration from unraveling the hard-won protections of our climate, health, and communities, and the rights of people of color, workers, indigenous people, immigrants, women, LGBTQIA, and young people. More here>>
