Welcome to elpasosierraclub.org

Welcome to the El Paso Group of the Rio Grande Chapter of the Sierra Club. We have about 500 members, located in west Texas, including the counties of El Paso, Hudspeth, and Culberson. We share a love of the outdoors and a desire to leave to our children and grandchildren the same opportunities to enjoy the outside world that we have had.  To accomplish this, we support conservation, smart energy solutions to combat global climate change, and wise use and protection of public lands.

We hope that you will follow our site to receive email announcements letting you know whenever we update our site.   To learn more about how you can get involved with our group contact any Executive Committee member listed on the About page.    To contribute information to our site including pictures contact our webmaster Rick LoBello at ricklobello@gmail.com.
