Leadership Training

Do you want to be a leader for the Sierra Club Seniors?  It’s fun and rewarding but it takes some learning, some experience, and there are requirements to be met.  One requirement is the Sierra Club Leadership Training Class, which involves about 6 – 8 hours either on a Saturday or on two weekday nights.  Others include Sierra Club membership, a current First Aid certification and a number of co-leads.  For information call Ingrid Bruckner, 916.383.6457

About the Sierra Club

 John Muir founded the Sierra Club in 1892, wanting others to share his love of earth and all of nature.  He knew if people learned how to explore, enjoy and value the wild lands that are their heritage, they would also work together to preserve this legacy. The Sierra Club is now the nation’s largest and strongest group dedicated to conserving and protecting all the environment around us, whether in the cities or in the wilderness. The Club’s goal is a world that allows all life forms to live and prosper, and in which we act responsibly to respect the rights of all living things.

The Mother Lode Chapter, serving Northern California, offers outings, programs and conservation action. Outings and other activities, including those of the Sierra Club Seniors, are listed online at The Chapter’s newsletter, the Bonanza, lists additional information about issues of interest to members.
