Meetings

Click for details about our next meeting below.

You could stay home and watch another murder mystery drama on TV - or you could find out what the local Sierra Club W&W Group is doing to protect the most biologically rich territory in the state of Illinois ...

All are invited to our W&W Public Meetings. You'll meet members, learn a little about our conservation work and hear a short talk by a specialist on a current topic.

At Conservation Meetings, members plan campaigns to protect our local environment. We need your help to take on problems where you live!

Planning Meetings are open to all members interested in the operation and policies of the W&W Group. Those who would like to address the Executive Committee may e-mail the Chairman below to get on the agenda, or just to reserve a seat.

Members interested in learning about the environmental issues in our region, and getting involved in addressing them are welcome at our Conservation Meetings.
