Sierra Club Service
You know those family outings you’ll never forget? Add a day with Sierra Club to the memory bank. Service projects include hikes to remove invasive plant species and exotic weeds. Or staycation in Molokai while working and lodging on the dramatic Kalaupapa Peninsula. Learn the history of this isolated “lava leaf” and lend a hand with outdoor projects.
