The stimulus for founding the Sierra Club
The battle to save the Yosemite valley and federal legislation making it a National Park in 1890, all due to the lobbying efforts of John Muir and Robert Underwood Johnson.
John Muir wrote:
An “outings” program was developed.
“...If properly conducted [the outing] will do an infinite amount of good toward awakening the proper kind of interest in the forests and other natural features of our mountains, and will also tend to create a spirit of good fellowship among our members.”Will Colby
The 1905 Climb of Mt. Rainier

As Americans, we treasure our National Forest heritage. But over half of our National Forests have already been scarred by logging, roadbuilding, mining, and oil and gas drilling. This year, we have an historic opportunity to protect 60 million acres of the last unspoiled wildlands in our National Forests. Your help is needed!
