2022 Annual Report

Announcing our 2022 Annual Report

A central theme in our 2022 Annual Report (available here) is building a foundation for lasting transformational change. In 2022, we laid fertile soil and planted deep roots that will anchor us as we cultivate a more robust collective movement in Southern California. Here’s how our work illustrates this theme...


While our mission year-round is to explore, enjoy and protect the wild places of the Earth, we know April is a time when Angeles Chapter members and supporters feel particularly passionate and ready to take action. That's why throughout the month, we'll be highlighting the powerful activities and organizing taking place all over the region.

There are countless ways to get involved - from local hikes and community engagement events to online meetings. Find an event near you using our Earth Month activities map!  New activities will be added throughout the month.
