Greetings from the Sierra Club's Shawnee Group of Southern Illinois. The Shawnee Group is an activist organization with dedicated members working on numerous, local issues such as natural areas management; endangered species, biodiversity and wilderness preservation.

The board of directors of the Shawnee Group has discussed holding some daytime meetings for the benefit of members who are not comfortable driving at night. The first daytime program was held on Monday, January 19 at 2 pm and was a great success!  The room was full!  Watch for announcements of additional afternoon programs on April 22 and October 12.
