General Membership Meeting: You are invited to do something about it!
Location: Lantana Branch Library, 4020 Lantana Rd., Lake Worth, FL 33462 he Sierra Club Loxahatchee Group will host Rachelle Litt fromOrganizing for Action and Jan Booher from the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Boca Raton, both members of the Climate Action Coalition of South Florida for the December general meeting. Learn how climate change is already affecting Florida, and what YOU can do now to change the outlook. We will also discuss the Regional Climate Action Plan and Compact (RCAP) and the Federal Climate Action Plan and EPA Clean Power Plan in the context of how they relate to our state, county, and municipalities. This is the moral issue of our time and we have a choice. Are we going to let the effects of climate change destroy our homes and way of life as we know it, or are we going to stand up together and stop it? This meeting is free and open to the public. Please join us.

Inspiring Connections Outdoors

Palm Beach County Inspiring Connections Outdoors (formerly known as 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 Inspiring Connections Outdoors Program, please contact Sheila Calderon.
