We are excited to announce our Chapter's Executive Officers for the coming term (2023)! Leading the charge as Chair is Dyana Peña, who brings a wealth of experience and enthusiasm to the role, entering her second full year as chair. A resident of Lynwood, CA, she is a first-generation daughter of Mexican immigrants and a lifelong environmentalist. Her ultimate goal is for the Chapter to be a welcoming home to anyone who wishes to protect our environment.
Some exciting news for the Angeles Chapter Library!! After much-expressed interest and enthusiasm from members surrounding the induction of the new Library Committee, we’d like to invite you to join our first official meetings. Member involvement and commitment will be tailored to your schedule and can be as flexible as you need. The Library Committee is a space for members to build community, connect through the shared delight of reading, propose and plan future library events, upkeep the library, raise funds for the library, etc.
Are you the kind of person who enjoys perusing bookshelves? Do you have an interest in Angeles Chapter archives and history? Does organizing and caring for one of the largest collections of books in the Sierra Club sound like your idea of fun? Do you want to help create library events and a community for members?
From fundraising cheerleader to quiet supporter, everyone has a skill or passion that helps our Chapter grow. And, as we look ahead to planning our programs and 2024 budget, it’s really clear that our fundraising efforts need a boost.
You are invited to join us at one of two Angeles Chapter Fundraising Workshops this October.
Hi everyone! My name is Alex Chang, and I worked as a volunteer for the Sierra Club Angeles Chapter this summer. I recently graduated from Claremont High School in Claremont, California, and I am starting at UCLA this fall as a Climate Science major. In my free time, I like hiking, playing basketball with my friends, and learning as much as I can about the world.
Plans are already underway for the 2024 Angeles Chapter Banquet and Awards Presentation! The event will be held in May of 2024 - exact date and location are TBD.
Join our planning committee! We have several volunteer opportunities, including sponsor solicitations, auction planning, awards logistics, decor, marketing, and many other ways to help make this occasion very special for our awardees and a successful fundraiser.
Stay tuned for announcements about this event!

My name is Nguyen Tran, and I’m stoked to serve as your Chapter Librarian. During my spare time, I like hiking, reading, and trying new food recipes. My favorite hikes with the Sierra Club are the Griffith Park Night Conditioning Hikes and the Cucamonga Wilderness Hikes.
Earth Month was a breath of fresh air for the members and friends of Sierra Club Angeles Chapter, who laced up their hiking boots and hit the trails for a month full of adventure, exploration, and appreciation for the great outdoors. Here are some highlights:
