Join the team! Volunteer web editor needed

The Sierra Club Rio Grande Chapter is looking for a web editor — someone who can update the website and add events, stories, action alerts and other items.
The commitment is only a few hours a month, but it makes a big difference to our communications efforts. Please contact monablaber@gmail.com if you’re interested.

Join our team and stand up for New Mexico's air, public lands, water, wildlife and climate!

GJGJ whole group

The vibrancy and effectiveness of the Rio Grande Chapter is a direct result of the work of many active volunteers throughout New Mexico & West Texas.

Do you want to get more active in protecting the environment but haven't been quite sure how how to make a difference? Maybe you are only available on Saturday afternoons, but want to help when you can.

We Are The Water Sentinels — Rios de Taos

The Water Sentinels—Rios de Taos is a group of Sierra Club volunteers whose primary goal is to monitor the water quality in rivers of Taos County. Sentinels measure water quality components in five streams three times each year and we can do additional testing when someone reports a potential problem. We do have some other goals that may not be so obvious.

You’re making good things happen


By Camilla Feibelman, chapter director

In the face of so many and such complex environmental issues, focus and strategic action are essential to achieving real, tangible change.

Without focus and strategy we might be paralyzed by the scale of what we are confronting. But if we organize in a way that lets people take measurable action toward change that we can see and feel, we are more likely to be successful.

Numbers person? Help and have fun!

A volunteer who makes a difference

By Chapter chair John Buchser

Climate change is certainly giving us a slap in the face this year. My relatives in northern New Jersey were directly in the path of Sandy, reminding me of my childhood memories of a very frightening, noisy night followed by the sight of toppled trees along our street in the early ’60s before my family moved to New Mexico.
