Sierra Victoria leads Outings to wilderness areas around the city to help CRD residents connect with nature in our back yard. We also collaborate with other groups on campaigns to protect Wild Places that are a crucial piece in the mosaic of a sustainable Capital Region - such as the Juan de Fuca trail. Sierra Victoria is also concerned about the level of cancer-causing substances in our soil and water and have been been instrumental in persuading the municipalities of Victoria, Esquimalt and Oak Bay to pass pesticide bans.
Sierra Victoria is part of the Transition Victoria is engaging the Greater Victoria region in creating a resilient future. We envision a city of Greater Victoria that is transformed over the next twenty years from the current addiction to fossil fuels to a diverse, sustainable, resilient local culture and economy.movement which fosters a post-carbon way of life at a local level.
Sierra Victoria was formed in 1991. Our mandate is to address a wide range of environmental issues that affect the environment of the Capital Regional District (CRD). All members of Sierra Club BC who live in the CRD are automatically members of the Victoria group, and receive the group's newsletter.
About the Executive Committee
The group's activities are organized and conducted by a volunteer executive committee. We meet once a month to organize and develop our campaigns.
We haveon our executive committee, but there is no obligation to take on official position and all Sierra Club members are welcome to attend executive meetings.
Many people join the executive to work on particular issues that they are passionate about, to contribute their skills where needed, to connect with like-minded people, and to take action.
