In order to participate in Sierra Club's outings, each participant will need to sign a liability waiver.
If you would like to read a copy of the waiver prior to the outing, please see http://www.sierraclub.org/outings/chapter/forms/
In the interests of facilitating the logistics of some outings, it is customary that participants make carpooling arrangements. The Sierra Club does not have insurance for carpooling arrangements and assumes no liability for them. Carpooling, ride sharing or anything similar is strictly a private arrangement among the participants. Participants assume the risks associated with this travel.
The Outing leader has absolute authority to question trip participants as to their equipment, conditioning and experience before and during the trip and to prohibit participation in any Sierra Club outing. Note also that:
Each person is responsible for his or her own first aid equipment even though the leader will carry a kit. If you are injured, notify the leader immediately.
If you leave the outing, with or without the leader's permission, you are considered to be on your own until you rejoin the group with the leader's permission.
On any outings that are operated on National Park Service (NPS), U.S. Forest Service (USFS), the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service managed land, any fees that are charged are only used to cover direct participant expenses such as campground fees, meals, transportation, etc. Our outings are non-commercial in nature as no financial profit is derived from these activities.
Donations are accepted from all participants at any time, but are not mandatory. Money is collected by the leader and deposited with the Group treasurer for use in the outings program.
Participants are encouraged to carpool and share the driver's fuel expense. Suggested compensation is 9 cents per mile/person.

. Keeping a Nature Journal? http://www.sierraclub.org/education/nature_journal.asp This web page, written by Dr. Bonnie Gisel, Curator of the Sierra Club's LeConte Memorial Lodge, encourages people to follow in John Muir's footsteps by keeping a nature journal that helps better attune the author to their environment. It features a PDF downloadable nature journal template that can be used by anyone to create an attractive nature journal.
