A WILL IS A WAY...
To make a substantial gift to protect the environment. If you do not have a will, the state decides how your property and other affairs are handled. Decisions made now can later provide financial security for family, friends and the Sierra Club. You may even direct your bequest to a specific Club program or your home Chapter.
For more information and confidential assistance, contact the Sierra Club Planned Giving Program, 85 Seconds Street, 2nd floor, San Francisco, CA 94105, (415) 977-5639.

Now that we've moved our office, we have need for a few items (in good to excellent condition). Perhaps you can help. Donations for the move will also be accepted. Thanks.
Our wish list includes:
Colorado Hiking Certificate
With the hiking season on us, it is time to renew or purchase a Colorado Hiking Certificate. With the $1 certificate, you will have paid into the statewide search and rescue fund as if you had purchased a hunting or fishing license. It is a way for back country users who do not hunt or fish to be covered by the search and rescue fund.
Certificates are sold at most sporting goods stores and other outlets for hunting and fishing licenses. A portion of the cost funds the Watchable Wildlife Program and non-game functions of the Colorado Division of Wildlife.
At times even the best of plans, map reading abilities and eyes on the trail are just not enough. If you need a search and rescue team, a Colorado hiking certificate may prove to be the purchase of a lifetime.
