There are many ways to take action in our community, from volunteering to lobbying, letter-writing to joining our executive committee. Read below to see how you can get involved with the Niagara Group:
Join the Sierra Club
Members automatically receive the Niagara Group and Atlantic Chapter Newsletters, the Sierra Magazine and discounts on Club merchandise. Importantly, the more members we have in the Niagara Group, the more attention we get from elected officials and others. Although the Niagara Group is a low-budget, volunteer-led outfit, members’ dues are crucial in supporting the state- and national-level Sierra Club from which we receive so much support. For more information about Club membership, please click here.
Write a Letter to Support Legislation and Give Comments It is VERY IMPORTANT that YOU as a citizen communicate with elected officials!
Write a Letter to the Editor
The Buffalo News publishes short letters to the editors. There’s no easier way to reach an audience of thousands! For more information on letter writing check out our Writer’s Group page.
Join an Outing
At this time we are joining up with ADK (Adirondack Mountain Club) and Foothills Trail Club of WNY. Please go their websites for listings.
Participate in Local Decision Making
Many of the most important environmental decisions are made at the local and state level. We encourage everyone to vote in local elections, attend candidate forums and town meetings and public hearings, and otherwise get to know their local public officials. Often it takes just one interested citizen to educate a local official and make a real difference.
