The Rio Grande Chapter of the Sierra Club has executive committees at the state and local levels. ExComm members are responsible for determining priorities and actions. Please take the time to select the candidates to represent you.
We want you! As a Sierra Club Outings leader, join others in exploring our wild lands and share your love for nature with others. You could be hiking, backpacking, kayaking, bicycling or doing service work — it’s up to you, because you ultimately design and lead your own outings.
From Navajo rugs to outdoor adventures, art or a cabin retreat, this is a great opportunity to support the Rio Grande Sierra Club’s work regardless of where in New Mexico or West Texas you live.
