“Explore, enjoy and protect the planet”… this opening sentence of the Sierra Club mission statement exemplifies the objectives of the Outings committee.

Our current Outings Sub-chairs are: Backpacking – Barry Randall, Hiking – Denise Tingle, Paddlesports – Jay Freeman, Service – Jay Freeman, Cycling- Doug Jose
