Making a statement at Penns Landing

The Southeastern Pennsylvania Group (SPG), a member of Pennsylvania Chapter of the Sierra Club, is focused on the environmental issues facing the greater Philadelphia area. Our Sierra Club volunteers from Philadelphia, Delaware, Chester, Montgomery and Bucks counties are working together to maintain and improve the natural resources of the area and protect it for generations to come. Our mission: Explore, Enjoy and Protect the Planet, is the root of every project we undertake.

For the August meeting we will be meeting at City CoHo at Walnut & 24th in Philadelphia, 6:45pm

SPG executive committee meetings are held at 6:45 p.m. on the first Wednesday of every month at the offices of the Clean Air Council, located at 135 S. 19th St. Suite #300 in Philadelphia (unless otherwise noted). Members and non-members of the Sierra Club are welcome.

Conservation Committee

Philadelphia area volunteers periodically organize to address regional environmental issues - issues that either directly affect the people and wildlife of the Delaware Valley (like air polutants from coal burning power plants or water contaminants in the Delaware River) or environmental impacts that we have some responsibility for (like using energy from coal mined using mountaintop removal in Appalachia, or natural gas from unsafe drilling sites, or contributions to global climate change).
