Santa Fe Sierra Club Group Receives National Sierra Club Award

SAN FRANCISCO – Sept. 23, 2000 – The Santa Fe Group of the Sierra Club was among those receiving national recognition from the Sierra Club this fall.

The group received the national Sierra Club’s Denny and Ida Wilcher Award, which honors outstanding achievement in the area of membership and/or fundraising. The group received the award for fundraising accomplished through its publication of Day Hikes in the Santa Fe Area.

Day Hikes in the Santa Fe Area was first published in 1981. The fifth edition of the book was published in December 1999 and contains information on more than 60 area hikes. The 260-page book also contains a glossary of hiking terms, useful addresses and phone numbers, and suggestions of books for further reading.

The book has always been an all-volunteer project. All proceeds from the book during the past 19 years have gone to fund conservation projects in the Santa Fe area.

The Sierra Club, which was founded in 1892 by John Muir, is the country’s oldest and largest grassroots environmental organization. It currently has more than 600,000 members. For more information on the Santa Fe Group of the Sierra Club, write 621 Old Santa Fe Trail, Ste. 10, Santa Fe NM 87501 or call 505-983-2703.

Day Hikes in the Santa Fe Area is available in all local bookstores in Santa Fe and Los Alamos.
