Meet a Real Hero Congratulations to the Sierra Club's Lynn Henning for winning the prestigious 2010 Goldman Environmental Prize. Lynn's a Michigan farmer who took action after massive factory farms began polluting the water near the 300-acre family farm that she works with her husband in Lenawee County.
Over the past decade, she has become a leading voice calling on state and federal authorities to hold these livestock factory farms accountable.
Happy Birthday, Mr. Muir Our founder, John Muir, was born 172 years ago yesterday. We've celebrated by updating The John Muir Exhibit -- the best online source of John Muir information on planet Earth -- curated by superstar Sierra Club volunteer Harold Wood. (Take that, Wikipedia!)
Although we hope John Muir would appreciate his new website, we know what he'd really like is for more people to pull on their boots, go for a hike, and tell others how they can do the same.
See the Amazing 25 We called for applicants for The Best Internship on Earth. Boy, did we get applicants -- more than 800 of them! So you can imagine how great the 25 finalists are. But you don't have to imagine -- you can see their 90-second videos for yourself.
Who will get to spend the summer traveling around the country hiking, rafting, and working with kids as our Youth Outdoors Ambassador?
