Welcome to the Napa Group of California's Redwood Chapter of the Sierra Club.
Come help us with conservation projects in Napa County or take a hike!
Break out the "No of Napa Pipe Signs"!
After a 3-2 approval by the County Planning Commission, the Napa Pipe project now goes to the Board of Supervisors. We're hoping that the supervisors will vote down the project, and open the door to consideration of other futures for the land which will better serve our County. The county needs to hold the line on building large housing projects outside city limits.
Down with plastic bags!
Sierra Club is supporting Napa Can Do's campaign to ban plastic bags from retail outlets. A ban would forbid the large bags used to bag groceries and such, not smaller bags used to hold smaller items such as vegetables. Dozens of other municipalities have led the way with plastic bag bans, and we can learn from their experience. Can Do will begin with either the County or with the City of Napa, probably after the New Year begins. Stay alert for suggestions about how you can support their efforts.
Opportunities for Involvement:
The outings committee is re-organizing and looking for new members. This is a great opportunity to share ideas for new outdoor adventures. Contact email@example.com
Adopt a Park
Since last fall, a group of Sierra Club volunteers has been assisting the cultivation of young native plants at Napa’s Trancas Crossing Park, on Trancas and Soscol. Our work parties go out for a couple of hours at a time, weeding and mulching.... while enjoying the cries of hawks, and graceful soarings of swallows. To join our volunteer group, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
A membership chair organizes outreach to members and plans events for education and socialization. To apply, contact Nancy at email@example.com.
