We'd welcome your participation in our activities. It has been through the efforts of the Sierra Club's 750,000 members that local groups have more than 100 years of success in protecting the wild places of our planet and promoting responsible use of our ecosystems and natural resources.

Local members also enjoy a busy calendar of club sponsored outings such as hiking, canoeing, wildflower walks, birding, and much more. You need not be a club member to participate. Club members also volunteer on many "service projects" such as Shawnee National Forest trail projects that repair damage caused by man and nature. The Shawnee Group meets monthly in Carbondale for an educational forum. The public is invited to attend any meeting or outing.
