Got a summertime hiking itch that needs scratching? Delta Chapter of the Sierra Club can help with that. We're leading a hike at the Clark Creek area on June 14. Members and Friends throughout Louisiana are invited to participate. Clark Creek Natural Area in the Tunica Hills is a member favorite hiking destination despite being forgiveably located just across the state line in Mississippi which was a part of the Delta Chapter in our founding years.
