Throughout our 55th anniversary, the Rio Grande Chapter is featuring past campaigns and lifetime chapter members. A note from lifetime member Bette Korber:
This week I’m stepping into 60 years on planet Earth, and have been with the Sierra Club since I was 16, when I first set out to hike the John Muir Trail and fell in love with the high wild places where granite and grace touch the sky.
Through my father, I learned to love wild places for just being as they are: beautiful, perfect and complete. The most important work of our times is finding ways to leave our sweet Earth intact for the next generations. I’m grateful to be a small part of something as powerful as the Sierra Club, citizens together, working towards this goal.
