The first Earth Day was celebrated in Washington D.C., 50 years ago, on April 22, 1970. But by then the Angeles Chapter had already been working to preserve the Earth and its wild places for decades.
Formed in 1911 as the Sierra Club’s first chapter, by 1970 the Angeles Chapter had grown to 12,500 members. It had weathered wars, depressions and recession, floods and fires. It had fought, sometimes winning and other times losing, the lasting damage caused by rampant development and wanton pollution. As reflected in archived issues of the Southern Sierran, the chapter was energetically working on national, regional and local issues.
National Sierra Club Elections are Underway - VOTE!
The Sierra Club is a democratically structured organization at all levels. Sierra Club requires the regular flow of views on policy and priorities from its grassroots membership in order to function well. Yearly participation in elections at all Sierra Club levels is a major membership obligation.
The election of 5 members of the Sierra Club national Board of Directors will be held beginning March 1. Ballots will be sent to eligible members, either electronically or by U.S. mail, during the last week in February. Find more information about the candidates and Angeles Chapter recommendations.
Ballots must be received no later than April 22, 2020.
