Sierra Club Angeles Chapter
The first local chapter of the Sierra Club was founded on November 1, 1911. 75 Sierra Club members gathered in downtown Los Angeles to sign a petition calling for the creation of a "Southern California Section". Today, the Sierra Club Angeles Chapter covers Los Angeles and Orange Counties. The Angeles Chapter of the Sierra Club offers a wide variety of opportunities to get involved with your friends and neighbors to explore, enjoy and protect the natural resources of Southern California.
