Sierra Club of Howard County

Since 1892, the Sierra Club has been work­ing to pro­tect com­mu­ni­ties, wild places, and the planet itself. The local Howard County group encour­ages enjoy­ing and explor­ing nature and stew­ard­ship of our local environment.


The Sierra Club of Howard County pro­vides edu­ca­tion pro­grams for the pub­lic sev­eral times a year at no cost. They also have an active sched­ule of out­door activ­i­ties for the pub­lic such as hik­ing and camp­ing. These can be found on their web­site at www.maryland.sierraclub.org/hc/outings.html

The Sierra Club of Howard County also sup­ports the fol­low­ing programs:

  • Inter­na­tional Coastal Cleanup — held the third Sat­ur­day in Sep­tem­ber. The Club sup­plies vol­un­teers and funds for trash bags and trash pickers.
  • Green­Fest — sup­ports the fes­ti­val with an infor­ma­tion booth and pur­chased trees to plant a stream buffer at Howard Com­mu­nity College.
  • Project Clean Stream — sup­plies vol­un­teers and funds for trash bags and trash pickers.
  • Herp Atlas (MD Amphib­ian & Rep­tile Atlas) — this was a 5 year sur­vey from 2010–2014 of amphib­ians and rep­tiles in Mary­land. Sierra Club sup­ported this project with funds for sup­plies and with volunteers.


Vol­un­teers are encour­aged to par­tic­i­pâté in the activ­i­ties listed above, espe­cially the Inter­na­tional Coastal Cleanup and Project Clean Stream.
