A More Livable Environment

The Sierra Club Angeles Chapter seeks to engage its members and the public in a range of activities to make Los Angeles and Orange Counties more livable. Volunteer activists promote livability in their communities by organizing around everything from land preservation and public transportation to air quality and sustainable consumption.

Among our current priorities are:

Preserving Open Space
We are working to stop poorly planned commercial and residential development that is chipping away at critical native habitats and outdoor recreation areas.
