Statement of Purpose
The mission of the Sierra Club is to explore, enjoy and protect the wild and beautiful places of the Earth; to practice and promote the responsible use of the Earth's ecosystems and resources; to educate and enlist people to protect and restore the quality of the natural and human environment; and to use all lawful means to carry out these objectives.
The Delta Chapter is 3,000 of your neighbors supporting the work of the Sierra Club in Louisiana. We advance the cause of protecting Louisiana's environment in a variety of ways, including sponsoring a campaign to take Mercury out of the environment, identifying and protecting the state's scenic rivers, and working to save the cypress and keep the Atchafalaya Basin, America's greatest river swamp, wet and wild. We work to raise public awareness about the effects of human caused climate change and to develop clean energy solutions. We advise the state legislature in Baton Rouge on issues related to public health and the environment. In addition we conduct outings and informational events so that our members and friends can get outside and enjoy our beautiful state.
The Sierra Club has 2.4 million members and supporters. Inspired by nature, we work together to protect our communities and the planet. The Sierra Club is America's oldest, largest and most influential grassroots environmental organization.
