Welcome!

The Centennial Group of the Georgia Chapter of the Sierra Club was organized in 1992, the one hundredth anniversary of the Sierra Club. Our members from Cobb, Cherokee, and North Fulton counties volunteer to educate, help, and encourage our fellow citizens to protect Georgia?? "!s environment for our children, grandchildren, and beyond.

We meet on the first Thursday of each month at Life University. We host a variety of programs relating to our goals or simply about Georgia's natural beauties. We also hold free outings for members and nonmembers.

NOTICE: There will be no regular
meeting on July 3

Instead, please join us on July 10 for our annual picnic Thursday evening at East Cobb Park - Pavilion #1 (3322 Roswell Rd., Marietta, GA 30068) 5:30 - 9:00 PM.

This is a family friendly annual event. Bring your children and neighbors. You do not have to be a Sierra Club member to join us. The fun will start at 5:30PM. We will gather for a short optional hike before we eat at 6:30. The group will provide beverages, burgers, and hot dogs (stainable meat only and vegetarian choices). Please bring a side dish and your own picnic utensils (cup, plate, bowl, fork, spoon, etc.) We will have extra on hand if you do forget, but please try to think green when preparing for the picnic.
