Do you have that special place that you would like to share with like minded people? Would you like to be part of an outings program that has existed since 1901?

As a local outing leader, you have the opportunity to share your interest in Georgia's wild areas with fellow outdoors and nature lovers - whether day hiking, peak scrambling, birdwatching, or multi day trekking. Georgia Chapter Outings also introduce trip members to the Sierra Club - often laying the foundation for future participation with the Sierra Club and local conservation efforts.

We are always looking for knowledgeable, passionate, outdoor-savvy people to join as Outings leaders. If that is you, why not become one?

Sign up for a session today!

Outdoor Leader Training 101 (OLT 101)

Time: 9:00a to 12 noon

Descr: This is the first step to becoming a certified outings leader. The training is designed to provide participants with the skills and confidence required to lead day trips and overnight car-camping trips for the Sierra Club. The goal is to prepare trip leaders to lead safe and fun trips while inspiring their participants to become more involved in protecting their environment.

While there is no cost for the OLT 101 course, $10 will cover lunch provided at the training. The training course is held only twice a year in the Atlanta area and attendance is limited to 10 people.

The training will be held at the chapter office located at 743 E. College Ave, Suite B, and will run from 9 AM to 12 noon. To sign up, please click here.

First Aid Training

Time: 1:00p to 4:00p

Descr: First Aid Training, which is also required for outings leader certification, is to be held the same afternoon in the chapter office from 1 PM to 4 PM.
