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

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

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

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

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
