The Sierra Club’s Major Campaigns: Resources for Members and Activists

by Kirk Cunningham, Conservation Chair

Some radical environmental groups have accused the Sierra Club of “sleeping at the switch” on important national conservation issues. However, those who are actively engaged in dealing with those issues, whether at the national or local level, know otherwise. If anything, the action now is too intense.

Listed below are the major national campaigns and the literature available to support the public and activists. All literature listed may be obtained from Kimberly Williams at the Sierra Club in San Francisco, 415-977-5577, or  

1. The Anti-Sprawl Campaign: 

2. The Wildlands Campaign: 

3. The Clean Water Campaign (focusing especially on confined animal feeding operations):

4. The End Commercial Logging Campaign: 

5. The Responsible Trade Campaign:

Of course, this list of resources is only a small part of the issues information that the Club makes available to interested people. To see what else is available, please check out the Club’s web site at
