The Sierra Club will be taking part in Earth Day Events all over the Bay Area this April. Come to these events; even better, volunteer to help staff the Sierra Club tables. It is an opportunity to introduce others to the Club and inform them about our environmental concerns. This year we will especially focus on water conservation and stopping fracking.
