Fighting For What We Value
Fighting for what we value is a huge expense, even though many experts, scientists, lawyers and volunteers provide their services to the Sierra Club for free. Your financial support enables the Sierra Club San Diego to continue working on your behalf for the environment.
In times like these, conservation is especially important to prevent irresponsible decisions that endanger our health and our natural world. We must act now if we are to ensure a future that includes clean air, clean water, open spaces and abundant native wildlife, the issues that define our quality of life. Your contribution will support the grassroots actions needed to protect and improve our environment. Even a very small donation – $5 or $10 – is important to our work.
