About the Sierra Club

In 1892, John Muir and a number of his supporters founded the Sierra Club to, in Muir's words, "do something for wildness and make the mountains glad." (article written by Joseph N. LeConte on the twenty-fifth anniversary of the Sierra Club) [offsite resource - internet archive -] .Muir served as the Club's president until his death in 1914.
