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.
SPG Executive Committee meetings are held the first Wednesday of each month at 6:45pm. The September through December SPG Executive Committee meetings we will be held at City CoHo at 2401 Walnut St in Philadelphia, 6:45pm. The entrance is on the parking lot side of the building - at the end of Sansom St.
Members and non-members of the Sierra Club are welcome. To join the meeting by phone, call 866-501-6174, then enter the code 100 4 100#
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).
