Sierra Club - Grand Canyon Chapter
 
The Sierra Club was formed in 1892 by John Muir. Our Mission is: To explore, enjoy and protect the planet. To practice and promote the responsible use of the earth's ecosystems and resources; to educate and enlist humanity to protect and restore the quality of the natural and human environment; and to use all lawful means to carry out those objectives. The Grand Canyon (Arizona) Chapter was started in 1966 as a way to help focus attention on stopping dams in Grand Canyon. The work to protect the Colorado River and Grand Canyon National Park continue today. The Grand Canyon Chapter helped win designation of four million acres of wilderness in Arizona, stopped numerous old growth logging proposals, helped restore and protect Fossil Creek, and continues to work to protect the Verde and San Pedro Rivers. We have won passage of key environmental legislation including the Environmental Quality Act, which protects our air and water, and the Heritage Fund, which provides funding for parks and wildlife, and have helped defeat legislation that would undercut environmental protections. Our chapter has helped promote clean renewable energy and energy efficiency programs as well as measures to improve air quality by supporting mass transit and a Clean Car standards.
