Inner City Outings

West Palm Beach Inner City Outings is a program of the Sierra Club dedicated to exposing urban South Florida youth to the wonders of nature. Our group includes participants from Palm Beach County and surrounding areas. We are led completely by volunteer leaders who dedicate some of their time to take children who would not otherwise have the opportunity on safe and fun outdoor trips.

Some of our great trips have been to Myakka River State Park, Johnathan Dickinson State Park, Big Cypress National Preserve, Everglades National Park, and Loggerhead Marinelife Center! We love to camp, hike, canoe, learn about Florida’s flora and fauna, have fun and make friends while we are exploring!

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer for the Inner City Outings Program, please contact Sheila Calderon.
