Local chapter and group outings are generally open to members and non-members alike. A few outings may require membership, but most do not. No fees are charged either, except for incidental expenses like park-entry costs.

Our outings leaders are Sierra Club volunteers, and the range of outings is as diverse as their interests. Depending on where you are, you can choose from day hikes, peak scrambles, bicycling, cross-country skiing, bird-watching, conservation-oriented walks, or forays into the remaining natural areas of our major cities.

In short, Sierra Club outings are a great way to find out about local conservation issues while enjoying the great outdoors!
