Explore the Wild Country with Like-Minded Folks

The Dallas Sierra Club has a robust outings program to support the chapter’s conservation and education goals, including day hikes in and around the Dallas area, car camping trips to state parks and wild areas, backpacking trips, canoeing trips, bicycling, cross-country skiing, bird-watching, conservation-oriented walks and forays into the remaining natural areas of the city, inner city outings, service outings, family outings and singles outings.

Several times a year, they charter a bus and go camping and hiking in Colorado, New Mexico, Big Bend National Park and other destinations. These outings are generally open to both members and non-members. A few may require membership, but most do not. No fees, other than perhaps transportation and incidental expenses like park entry costs, are levied. Outings leaders are Sierra Club volunteers.

Here is a sampling of upcoming Dallas Sierra Club Outings: White Lake clean-up on September 10; trail maintenance at Cedar Ridge Preserve on September 17; group camp out at Beavers Bend State Park from October 14 to 16; beginner backpacking trip to the Caney Creek Wilderness from October 22 to 23; and backpack or camp and hike at Buffalo National River, Arkansas, from October 27 to 31.
