- 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 Thursday, March 13, 1:00 PM, at the Sequim Library. All Sierra Club members are welcome. Contact Monica Fletcher for details.

Wild Olympics - Protecting our Ancient Forests and Rivers for Future Generations
On January 17th, 2013 Senator Patty Murray and Congressman Derek Kilmer 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.
