Welcome to the Coasters – North County Coastal Group

The Coasters are the geographic division of the San Diego Chapter for the north coastal area, Del Mar to Oceanside. We organize a variety of Sierra Club activities in coastal North County, including conservation efforts, outings, and social events.

Guest Speaker:

Catherine Blakespear – Join us for a special presentation from Encinitas Mayor who will review her environmental priorities for 2021 and answer some of your questions. 

Special Presentation:

30×30 Conservation Agenda A bold vision for the future:

Protect 30 percent of lands and waters in the United States by 2030 to meet the challenge of climate change and provide space for wildlife and communities to thrive. 

We are pleased to host representatives from Sierra Club California who will discuss this bold campaign and why it is critical to our efforts to combat climate change. 

  • Learn what this means for California and our local community
  • See how you can be involved in this critical campaign

 “In the U.S., the science shows that we need to protect roughly half our remaining undeveloped natural areas in order to safeguard our outdoors and our climate,” said Dan Ritzman, Lands, Water and Wildlife director for Sierra Club’s Our Wild America campaign. “Sierra Club is dedicated to making sure public lands are part of the climate solution.”

 Everyone Welcome!

What’s New From The Coasters

What Can You Do Now? Our Goal with this new group is to support the Sierra Club Mission to “Explore, Enjoy and Protect our Planet,” while addressing issues and providing outdoor opportunities that are important to our North County Coastal area.

Here are some immediate ways that you can get involved:

City Ambassador – We are looking for a few volunteers to become Information Ambassadors for their city – Ambassadors will help us stay up to date with important issues, developments and activities in each of the coastal cities.  This will help our group stay informed and ready to mobilize on hot button issues. Contact Mayela at mayelaphoto@gmail.com.

Conservation Group – Volunteers will help jump start a “Coasters Conservation Group.”  This group will work with the San Diego Chapter Conservation Group while bringing North County issues and priorities to the forefront. Contact Alice at aliceh.john@gmail.com.

Outings – Our San Diego Chapter offers a number of ways to enjoy our beautiful region from sponsored hikes to Basic Wilderness Training Courses.  Our Coasters group will be a galvanizing force for our area to tap into all that is currently available while exploring opportunities that are unique to our region. Contact Carl Pope at seatp3@gmail.com.

Social Media Guru – We are looking for volunteers to help us create and manage our website and FaceBook page.  Effective communication with our “Coasters Group” is the key to our success and critical during this politically charged time! Contact Sally at sallyp123@mac.com.

If you are interested in any of these opportunities, would like more information and /or have some other ideas to help build our Group please contact Sally Prendergast @sallyp123@mac.com.
