Welcome to the Sierra Club Hawai‘i Island Group!

The Sierra Club of Hawai‘i is one of the oldest and most effective grassroots environmental organizations in the islands. The Hawaiʻi Island Group was founded in 1975 and is currently 800+ members strong, working to help protect Hawaiʻi Island’s unique environment and wildlife.

We work hard to advance Sierra Club’s mission to explore, enjoy, and protect the wild places of the earth; to practice and promote the responsible use of the earth’s ecosystems and resources; to educate and enlist humanity to protect and restore the quality of the natural and human environment; and to use all lawful means to carry out these objectives.
