Welcome to Sierra Sage

Sierra Sage of South Orange County is a group under the Angeles Chapter of the Sierra Club. We have a commitment to protect the natural environment of our world and take a special interest in the natural environs which still exist in and around Orange County. We fulfill this commitment in a number of ways that include political activism, public awareness campaigns,and direct environmental action. Additionally we promote the environment by providing fun, interesting, and informative outings that encourage an appreciation of nature. One of the best ways to encourage people to take a stand in defense of nature is to expose them to its beauty and the many ways in which our lives are dependent on it. See the Sierra Sage newsletter about current conservation issues.
