Earth Day: April 22, 2010
Turn America Green

Help Turn America Green
Earth Day is a chance for each of us to think about how we can help our planet. Add your pledge for a simple green action to our Earth Day map of America and you'll be amazed at how everyone together can make a big difference by doing small things.

And if you make your pledge by April 30th, you could also win a trip to Hawaii!



Meet a Real Hero Lynn Henning
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.

Watch her story in this short video narrated by Robert Redford -- we guarantee you'll be inspired.

John MuirHappy 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.

Here's the place to do exactly that!
