Protect America's Environment: For our families, For our future

The Sierra Club is a non-profit member-supported, public interest organization that promotes conservation of the natural environment by influencing public policy decisions: legislative, administrative, legal and electoral.

Sierra Club's mission is "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 environments; and to use all lawful means to carry out these objectives."

The Piedmont Group is one of thirteen groups under the Virginia Chapter of the Sierra Club. We are based in the Charlottesville area and serve Charlottesville City and Albemarle, Culpeper, Fluvanna, Greene, Louisa, Madison, Orange and Rappahannock Counties. The National Sierra Club headquarters is located in San Francisco.

The Piedmont Group holds general meetings and sponsors other events with the aim of providing educational programs on the natural environment and other issues of current interest. Our meetings and periodic outings are open to the public. We are a grassroots organization relying on volunteers to accomplish our goals.

If you are interested in volunteering for the Piedmont Group, there are various ways that you can help. Please visit and fill-out our Volunteer Form.
