Description

The Georgia Sierra Club's biennial Fall Gathering is quickly approaching!

We will come together on the weekend of October 20-22 at Amicalola State Park and Lodge to celebrate our community’s 125 years of service to the environment. Please join us as we enjoy all things fall in the North Georgia mountains, including:

  • Guided hikes
  • Paddle trips
  • Morning yoga and meditation
  • Chili and campfires

and participate in our educational workshops, such as:

  • Sierra Club 101
  • Climate Change Frames
  • Anti-Racism Dialogue
  • Military Outdoors
  • Sustainable Activism

On Saturday night, we will gather for an awards banquet. At the Fall Gathering, we will hear from Georgia’s environmental leaders, celebrate all of the work that has been done through the Georgia Chapter, and recognize all of the people we could not have done it without. We hope to see you there!

Please nominate an outstanding volunteer for an award here: Nominate a Volunteer
