Conservation Committee

The Conservation Committee is the center of activism for the Sierra Club's San Diego Chapter. Its mission is four-fold:

  • Watching over continuing environmental concerns.
  • Advocacy of laws and regulations to protect the environment.
  • Monitoring enforcement of environmental laws and regulation.
  • Environmental education in the schools and community.
  • The Committee meets the fourth Tuesday of every month at 6:30 P.M. in the chapter office and all interested are invited.

    The Committee is made up entirely of volunteers. Sub-committees each focus on an environmental issue ranging from old growth forest protection to water quality.

    Aside from the personal satisfaction conservation activists receive, other benefits include the backing of the over 17,000 chapter members of one of the world's most prestigious environmental organizations. Members also benefit from the club's networks, information channels and training opportunities. Volunteers are often asked to act as the environment's "voice" on governmental advisory committees. And many who received their start as Sierra Club volunteers are now serving at all levels of government and non-profit environmental organizations.
