Our mission is to explore, enjoy and protect the wild places of the earth; to practice and promote the responsible use of the earth’s ecosystems and resources; to educate and enlist humanity to protect and restore the quality of the natural human environment; and to use all lawful means to carry out these objectives.

The Pennsylvania Chapter was organized in the early 1970s and officially opened its office doors in Harrisburg in 1983.

Our 25,000 members are lead by an all-volunteer executive committee who drive the conservational, political, and organizational development of the Chapter as it seeks to reach the objectives of the Sierra Club mission.

The Pennsylvania Chapter is composed 10 area groups that are each governed by their own executive committees who are elected by group members on an annual basis. The statewide Chapter is also served by an executive committee comprised of delegates from each of the 10 groups within the Chapter,
at-large delegates, and a variety of officers. Officers and delegates are elected annually, while at-large delegates serve for two-year terms and are elected by the general membership. Click here for a complete listing of Chapter leadership.
