Volunteer to save YOUR environment today!

The Sierra Club is a national organization, but our effectiveness is largely in part to our volunteers at the grassroots level. This is especially true in your local Northeast Florida Group, where all of us are volunteers, spending what time we can to helping make our neighborhoods a better, safer, and more environmentally-friendly place to live.

If you are interested in our activities or issues -- and you must be, since you're visiting us online -- please look over the list below for our immediate volunteer needs. All you have to do is contact the lead volunteer on a particular project, and you will be on the road to involvement, enriching your life and improving our environment! If you have talents or are aware of something that isn't on this page, please contact our chair, Janet Stanko, and talk to her about how you'd like to get involved with the Club.

We like to save the environment AND have fun -- Please contact us today. Contact our Group Chair, Janet Stanko at 904-357-0703 to volunteer, or fill out the form below and email it to Janet Stanko.
