The Sierra Club was founded in 1892 and is America's oldest, largest,
and most influential grassroots environmental organization. Inspired by
nature, we are 1.3 million of your friends and neighbors, working
together to protect our communities and the planet.
The Santa Margarita Group is a part of the San Gorgonio
Chapter, serving the Inland Area of Southern California since 2008.
Don't forget... September 27th is the Walk for the Wild: a
50th Anniversary Celebration of the Wilderness Act, held
at the Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden.
Here's what's currently happening
in our Group...
Our great hikes leaders have planned a couple of great outings -
on Sept 13 we’ve got a 9 miler in Mountain Center, and a five
miler on Oct 25 on the Fuller Ridge Trail in Idyllwild which is
part of the Pacific Crest Trail. We also have two easier hikes
scheduled, suitable for families or those new to hiking. First
the San Juan Loop Trail on September 28th at 2.2 miles and a
three miler, also on part of the PCT on the Agua Caliente Trail
on Oct. 11. We even have a cycling outing, on Oct 19 on the San
Luis Rey River trail.
The Santa Margarita group takes a break from our usual programs
in summer, when we plan the schedule for the next year, but
we’ll start back up in September with a roster of interesting
presenters. We’re inviting experts to speak to us on subjects
ranging from the status of local water supply, to climate
friendly gardening, to coastal conditions. It should be a fun
and educational series of talks.
Of course, this year marks the 50th anniversary of the
passage of the Wilderness Act, and SMG will be at the “Walk for
the Wild” in Claremont on September 27th to commemorate it. This
is a major event put together by the California Wilderness
Coalition, the Angeles National Forest, the Bureau of Land
Management and other important defenders of wildlife and we are
glad to be part of it.
We continue to work on the establishment of the 16 mile
Murrieta Creek trail, and are busy planning a ribbon cutting
event scheduled for National Trails Day on June 6, 2015 when we
intend to open our interim trail.
OUR SANTA MARGARITA GROUP GENERAL MEETINGS ARE HELD ON THE
2nd THURSDAY OF EVERY MONTH EXCEPT IN JULY AND AUGUST AT
THE TEMECULA VALLEY LIBRARY, 30600 PAUBA ROAD, TEMECULA
STARTING AT 6:00PM.
