How many times have you read about some “outrage” or another and thought “someone should do something about that?” Well, there are people out there fighting every day. The Sierra Club is currently suing the Federal Government to stop damaging seismic testing and off-shore drilling along the coast of Florida. You can’t fight every fight; life is busy and we often think “I’m just one person, what can I do?” Well, one thing you can do is help support the people who are out there every day fighting the fights that you believe in.
You can become a Sierra Club member for as little as $15. Please visit the Sierra Club website and become a Sierra Club member.
Join the Sierra Club
We welcome all interested in joining us!! In these troubled times our work to PROTECT is more important than ever. Founded in 1892, the Sierra Club is the oldest and largest environmental advocacy organization in North America.
Here in Nassau County, Florida our group of hard working volunteers would love to have you on board!
The Amelia Island Right Whale Action Group (AIRWAG) is a subcommittee of the Nassau County Sierra Club Group and we are pleased to invite your involvement!
We especially need your financial help. All of the operating expenses of AIRWAG, whether sponsoring speakers, doing educational outreach in local schools, creating plans to build a float for the 56th Annual Isle of Eight Flags Shrimp Festival Parade, or other planned activities are funded through the sponsorship of the Nassau County Sierra Club Group. Without their support we would be severely limited in our abilities.
For each new member who joins the Sierra Club via the online form found below, the Nassau County Sierra Group will receive a 50% share of your 1st year’s initial membership dues. Member benefits include automatic local membership, a one-year subscription to Sierra Magazine, the Florida’s Chapter newsletter the Pelican, and opportunities to join local outings, activism for Nassau county Group issues, and more.
Everyone with Nassau County Sierra Club Group is an unpaid volunteer. We’re doing what we can to better the local community. It takes a village. And we thank you for wanting to be part of that village.

The strength of the Sierra Club is that it has always been a grass roots organization. Our volunteer structure allows anyone in the Club to make their own personal contribution. Each one of those contributions takes us one step closer to our goals towards saving the North Atlantic Right Whale and other locally important issues.
The local Nassau County Sierra Group usually meets on the first Friday of the month (Sept- May). Meetings start at 7:00 pm. and are held at the Fernandina Beach Public Library located at 25 N. 4th St.
The format of our meetings include a brief session of announcements followed by a presentation or film about an issue in which the Nassau County Group is interested. Events are noticed in the Fernandina Beach Newsleader and on the Sierra Club, Nassau County group Facebook page.
