And a sensitively written newspaper article with some wonderful photos and personal anecdotes from those close to her:
The Sierra Club Hudson Mohawk Group was founded in 1974 and has been dedicated to preserving, protecting and helping our members enjoy nature. Our territory covers the fourteen county area of the Capital District of New York State, centered in Albany-the capitol of New York State. The Hudson Mohawk Group, consisting of over 3,000 members is a subset of the Sierra Club Atlantic Chapter which is the statewide organization, also located in Albany. We are all organized under the national Sierra Club which is headquartered in San Francisco, California.
We have many conservation issues in which we are directly involved and others in which we play a supporting role. This provides our members with many volunteer opportunities for involvement in one way or another. This includes such actions as communicating with lawmakers about proposed legislation, contacting and educting other Sierra Club members about activities and getting involved at the ground level to protect natural areas such as forests, wetlands and bodies of water.
Please contact us with any questions you may have at (518) 210-5294 We will update this site continually to accommodate our many members, keep you informed and hopefully get you involved in our activities to Explore, Enjoy and Protect the Planet!
