Attend Sierra Fest!

Sierra Fest, the NC Chapter's Annual Conference, will take place at the Eastern 4-H Environmental and Education Conference Center in Columbia, NC on May 11-13, 2007.

The theme of the conference will be "Living Green". Join fellow Sierrans for a fun-filled weekend in Northeastern North Carolina.

We have an exciting line-up of morning workshops followed by afternoon field trips to some of the best natural areas in the region. Planned outings will include something for everyone, but the emphasis in outings will be paddling and birding tow of the premier activities in Eastern NC....

Workshops will focus on various "Living Green" topics such as food and other purchasing choices and energy use in new and old homes. An update on legislative issues in North Carolina will also be provided. Our keynote speakers will be Sally Kneidel and Sara Kate Kneidal, mother and daughter authors of the book Veggie Revolution: Smart Choices for a Healthy Body and a Healthy Planet. Evening activities will include a celebration of the Chapter's 10th anniversary of having an office with paid staff as well as keynote speech by Sierra Club President, Lisa Renstrom.

Outings will include birding at Lake Mattamuskeet, paddle trips on the Scuppernong River and Alligator River, a wildflower walk in Pettigrew State Park and others.
