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.

Nature Knowledge Workshop 2015
The Nature Knowledge Workshop (NKW) is the premier outdoor educational event held by the San Diego Chapter of the Sierra Club. This year, we will hold a revised program due to the constraints on overnight use of Foster Lodge after the fire. We will hold two separate daily programs on June 13 and 14, instead of the historic all-weekend event. You may attend either or both daily programs. See details at the NKW page.
