Welcome to the Dallas Group of the Sierra Club
The Dallas Sierra Club
There is so much beauty in North Texas. From the people to the places they inhabit, there are rich cultures and communities; vast spaces and urban centers; and blends of histories and cultures. The Dallas Sierra Club is proud to support and assist all our communities and to help them to protect their individualism while also creating an environment free of industrial pollution, impure air, and contaminated soil. We also believe that the best ways to honor the environment is to get out in it! The Dallas Sierra Club does this by hosting local and out of town hikes, explorations of wild spaces, and urban out reach to engage those who may not have equal opportunities to surround themselves with green.
Colorado Bend State Park Campout - October 19-22
Fall is finally around the corner, one of our favorite times of year to explore this premier state park on the north edge of the Texas Hill Country and sleep under the stars on the thick grassy site bordered by the Colorado River. We have the group campsite reserved for the weekend of October 19-22. Hike with Dallas Sierra Club leaders or relax on your own. Trails, waterfalls, wildlife, this park has it all! Great outing for beginners, families, birders, nature enthusiasts of all ages and stages. Space is limited and pre-registration required by October 16 or earlier if trip fills. Don't miss out - click here to read the trip write up for complete information and reservation forms. Questions? Email Liz@dallassierraclub.org or call 214-207-4997.
