In April 2009, Sierra Club's Building Bridges to the Outdoors Program coordinated an alternative spring break trip to Puerto Rico for seven students from two NYC based BBTO sponsored programs. Participants took part in educational and outdoor experiences such as kayaking through a bioluminescent lagoon, hiking through El Yunque rainforest, and biking through natural mangrove forests. They also explored the northeastern ecological corridor, a stretch of coastal land, which the Sierra Club chapter in Puerto Rico continues to fight to protect. -
Founded by legendary conservationist John Muir in 1892, the Sierra Club is now the nation's largest and most influential grassroots environmental organization -- with more than two million members and supporters. Our successes range from protecting millions of acres of wilderness to helping pass the Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, and Endangered Species Act. More recently, we've made history by leading the charge to address climate disruption by moving away from the dirty fossil fuels and toward a clean energy economy.
