About

Cross Timbers Sierra Club is an outdoor recreation and conservation organization located in the upper North Texas region that includes cities like Denton and McKinney.  The ‘cross timbers’ ecosystem once thrived all over our region. Today, the eco-regions in North Texas are a combination of the Cross Timbers and Post Oak Savannah wildlife districts.

About Sierra Club

Founded by legendary conservationist John Muir in 1892, the Sierra Club is now the nation’s largest and most influential grassroots environmental organization — with more than two million members and supporters. Our successes range from protecting millions of acres of wilderness to helping pass the Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, and Endangered Species Act. More recently, we’ve made history by leading the charge to move away from the dirty fossil fuels that cause climate disruption and toward a clean energy economy.

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.

The Sierra Club mission of preservation and enjoyment of the natural environment reverberates throughout all its chapters and local groups.  The enduring strength and prestige of the Sierra Club stems not only from the programs and work of the national organization, but also from the dedicated efforts of its local groups.  The grass roots of the organization are made strong by the diverse interests and special concerns of local groups and individual members.
