The Sierra Club North Star Chapter is the leading grassroots voice to preserve and protect Minnesota’s environment.

Specifically, the Sierra Club North Star Chapter advances:

Volunteer Leadership
Some organizations have volunteers. The Sierra Club North Star Chapter is volunteers. Our members pick our legislative priorities, conduct the work, and make real change for Minnesota’s environment.

Environmental Advocacy
Our members lead work on a breadth of issues all across Minnesota to protect our state’s natural places and address our most pressing environmental challenges.

Outdoor Exploration
Minnesota has a rich natural environment. Our award-winning outings connect members to each other and to Minnesota’s natural places, building a legacy of connection to our land.

We invite you to join us in achieving our goals.
