- About Us
North Olympic Group
The North Olympic Group was organized in 2010 and has quickly become a powerful voice for protecting the Peninsula's ecosystem. We have 850 members in Clallam and Jefferson counties. Our operations are governed by seven volunteers with lots of help by our conservation committees. We have no paid staff. Meetings are generally held on the second Thursday of each month. All Sierra Club members are welcome (in fact encouraged) to attend. Since the locations change, it is best to contact one of the ExCom members to find the location of the next meeting.
Next Executive Committee Meeting: The North Olympic Group Executive Committee meeting will be held July 11th, 3:30 PM at the Sequim Library, 630 N. Sequim Ave. All Sierra Club members are welcome.

July 18, 2013: Wild Olympics Dirty Face Ridge Hike
This is the fourth in a series of Sierra Club sponsored outings highlighting the need for additional protections of the Olympic Peninsula’s free flowing rivers and ancient old growth forests. Join us on Thursday, July 18, for a hike that’s loaded with views long and sweet from one of the Olympics’ most popular peaks, Mt. Townsend. Ledges galore offer views into the heart of the Buckhorn Wilderness as we ascend a lesser-used trail allowing plenty of solitude along the aptly named Dirty Face Ridge.
This is a moderately strenuous hike: round trip is 7.5 miles with a 3,000 foot elevation gain. Bring water, lunch and your rain-gear; hiking boots are advised.

Wild Olympics - Protecting our Ancient Forests and Rivers for Future Generations
On June 21, 2012, Senator Patty Murray and Congressman Norm Dicks introduced historic legislation to establish new Wilderness and Wild and Scenic River protections on the Olympic Peninsula. If passed, the bill would protect the first new Wilderness designations (more than 126,000 acres ) on Olympic National Forest in nearly 30 years and the first ever Wild and Scenic River designations (for 19 rivers and their tributaries constituting 464 miles of river) on the Olympic Peninsula.
