Serving Southwest Florida
Sierra Club-Calusa Group
The Calusa Group of the Sierra Club includes people from a four county area in Southwest Florida: Lee, Collier, Hendry and Glades. We currently have over 1000 members in the southwest Florida area. The Calusa Group takes its name from the Calusa Indians, who are now extinct. The Calusa Indians lived and thrived along the coast of Southwest Florida. They thrived through living in harmony with our Southwest Florida environment
The Sierra Club's Statement of Purpose is: To explore, enjoy and protect the wild places of the earth; to practice and promote the responsible use of the earth's ecosystems and resources; to educate and enlist humanity to protect and restore the quality of the natural and human environment; and to use all lawful means to carry out these objectives.
Spotlight - Hands Across the Sands Event in Naples - Noon - May 17, 2014 - Naples Pier
Say NO to dirty fuels and YES to clean energy! Noon - May 17 - Naples Pier
On Saturday, May 17, join communities around the country to ask the president and local officials to reject the Keystone XL pipeline,
offshore drilling, and other dirty fuel projects that threaten our communities and destabilize our climate.
This National Day of Action is being jointly organized by the Tar Sands Coalition and Hands Across the Sand / Hands Across the Land.
Hands, founded in 2010, grew into an international movement after the BP oil disaster in April of that year. People came together to join hands, forming symbolic barriers against spilled oil and the impact of other forms of extreme energy.
We invite activists across the nation to organize rallies, marches, and vigils that call on the president to reject KXL and other tar sands pipelines, while at the same time asking our state and local leaders to say no to the dirty fossil fuel projects that endanger our local communities.
Whether it's Arctic drilling, mountaintop removal, dangerous tar sands pipelines, fracking, exporting liquid natural gas, or shipping crude by rail through our hometowns, we all have reason to be concerned -- for the health of our families, and the health of the planet.
Join hands! Join us! --- Noon - May 17 - Naples Pier, 25 12th Avenue, S. Naples, Naples, FL 34102
