Join us for Earth Day events!

Each year, Earth Day -- April 22 -- marks the anniversary of what many consider the birth of the modern environmental movement in 1970. Join us for these events and celebrations throughout the month of April.

Removal of native habitat at Banning Ranch halted

Activists prevailed this month at a California Coastal Commission hearing in which a land owner agreed to stop ruining the coastal open space at Banning Ranch in Newport Beach.

The 400-acre Banning Ranch, located at the mouth of the Santa Ana River, is the largest parcel of unprotected coastal open space remaining in Orange County.  Approximately half of Banning Ranch is a coastal salt marsh, while the other half is an adjacent coastal mesa. A 1,375-home development project is proposed for the coastal mesa.

Come to March 26 hearing on air-quality rules about oil and gas wells

The South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) has chosen Montebello as the site of the 3rd Working Group Meeting for Proposed Amended Rule (PAR) 1148.1 – Oil & Gas Production Wells. This is an important rule that will effect all oil and gas sites throughout Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside and San Bernardino counties.  Please come and make your voice heard!

A long-awaited (and deserved) land victory in Orange County. Who cares why it happened?

 

This is a long story with a happy ending that was hoped for but not assured. The Sierra Club played a role in the story, but I’ll leave it to you to decide whether we should claim victory, just say thank you to a developer, or do some combination of the two.

Chapter activists spend an afternoon with Paul Loeb

Hope is a hard thing to stoke in these days marred by congressional gridlock and obstructionist politicians, but author Paul Loeb broke through all that.

Loeb travelled from Seattle to meet with Angeles Chapter activists to speak about how we can project hope into the cynical atmosphere surrounding social and political action today.

We're proud of our record!

For over 120 years the Sierra Club has been America’s best-known environmental advocate. The Angeles Chapter, nearly 40,000 strong, is the largest and most influential of the 63 Sierra Club chapters nationwide.

With so many threats to the environment in 2015, simply preserving the gifts of nature isn’t enough. “Business as usual” is not sustainable. Failing to change doesn’t mean things will go on as before -- because they can’t. Change is urgent, and you can help.

Your voice and financial support will help Make Change Happen!
