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." Muir served as the Club's president until his death in 1914. Read more about the history of the Sierra Club.

Today, the Sierra Club has over 1.3 million members and supporters and is the oldest, largest, and most influential grassroots environmental organization in the United States.

John Muir and the Sierra Club - off-site link to a website/blog created by students at the University of the Pacific, hoping to "educate young minds on who John Muir was, his importance, his legacy, and his impact. Enjoy exploring through old photographs, ways to volunteer, viewing nature landscapes, listening to beautiful narrations from John Muir's journals,  and even videos of current Sierra Club members themselves."
