Sierra Club - Vermont Chapter
Thursday, January 19, 5-6pm
Worthy Kitchen, Woodstock

The Sierra Club was founded by legendary conservationist John Muir in 1892 and is now the nation's largest and most influential grassroots environmental organization. The Sierra Club's successes range from protecting millions of acres of wilderness to helping pass the Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, and Endangered Species Act. The Vermont Chapter of the Sierra Club works on conservation and environmental issues that are important to Vermont - forest fragmentation, climate change, clean water, and protecting our pollinators.

Green-Drinks-2Some of the programs they will be discussing are:
  • Fighting against forest fragmentation across the state
  • Ensuring that protections in Vermont's Clean Water Bill (Act 64) are enacted and enforced and that there is long term funding for the Clean Water Fund
  • Fighting against carbon pollution which is driving climate change - Ready for 100% clean energy Campaign, electric vehicles, and divestment
  • Education about the impacts of neonicotinoids on our bee and butterfly populations
  • Our local outings program
As usual Green Drinks are FREE and Open to everyone! These are fun social and informational events which require no prior knowledge or experience. Everyone is welcome! Discover what's happening locally around sustainability, meet great local people, discover ways to get involved, and eat some fantastic Worthy appetizers provided by Sustainable Woodstock.
