If you love bird watching, then you love the great outdoors, and that means that you have something in common with the Sierra Club. The Sierra Club is, in their own words, “America’s oldest, largest and most influential grassroots environmental organization.” They are passionate national advocates for clean water, protected forests, renewable energy, environmentalist rights, responsible trade, and family planning. They also seek an end to the problems of sprawl, global warming, and the degradation of our nation’s wildlands. They sound pretty good so far, don’t they?

The Sierra Club’s stated mission is to:

1. Explore, enjoy and protect the wild places of the earth.
2. Practice and promote the responsible use of the earth’s ecosystems and resources.
3. Educate and enlist humanity to protect and restore the quality of the natural and human environment.
4. Use all lawful means to carry out these objectives.

If you like what the Sierra Club stands for (and how could you not) maybe you would like to join.
