Sierra Club Summer Outings

Although it doesn't officially start for another 3 weeks, summer is in full swing here in Louisiana. It's a great time to get out and experience the outdoors, get a little sun, and enjoy what Nature has to offer. Of course, our spicy southern sun can make even the most die-hard outdoors enthusiast appreciate the creature comfort of A/C.

But there's another way to beat the heat, and that's by enjoying the shade of old growth trees on a wooded path, feeling the Gulf breeze while combing a quiet beach, or taking a quick dip in a creek, lake, or waterfall (one that's clean and free of major pollution, which isn't always the case).

The Delta Chapter is happy to announce it's lineup of summer outings for 2011 to help you do just that. As always, they are free and open to the public--membership in the Sierra Club is encouraged but not necessary. Sierra Club outings are a great way to not only enjoy the best of what our region has to offer, but also to meet likeminded people and learn more about how you can get involved to help others explore, enjoy, and protect Louisiana.

To attend, simply RSVP to the contact listed. Directions and details will be given. If you have ideas, suggestions, special questions or concerns, feel free to contact the trip leader or Devin Martin at devin.martin@sierraclub.org or 985-209-5454 (cell) or 337-826-8387 (home).
