About the Club

Hello! Thank you for your interest in the Mid-Hudson Sierra Club! If you love the outdoors and are concerned about its future, we invite you to join us.

Our group of the national Sierra Club is spread out over both Ulster and Dutchess (and other) counties. We have over 1800 members, and we'd love to add you to our group. If you're interested in joining us, please click here.

Our group has many events; we have Public Programs in the spring and fall. They are free and open to the public, so we invite you to hear our speakers and to meet our members. We had hikes in the past, but had to suspend our outings program due to the lack of an outings chair and enough qualified hike leaders. Let us know if you'd be interested.

Our group also puts out a quarterly newsletter called Fresh Air which describes our events, including our big fundraising effort of the year: our huge Tag Sale every September. We also do a variety of activities to try to help the environment, including a great deal of work opposing the proposed development of Williams Lake.

For more information, we invite you to contact any of Mid- Hudson's executive committee. Our current president is Joanne Steele.

Each newsletter costs us about $700... can you pay for a page, or donate dots? Can you think of and take on a new fundraising project for us?
