Serve Outdoors in September

September marks the beginning of fall, which means children head back to school filled with summer stories of the wild outdoor adventures they enjoyed. But this year, the month contains a somber milestone: the 10-year anniversary of the tragic events of September 11, 2001.

Now known as the National Day of Service and Remembrance, September 11 offers a chance to do volunteer work to honor those who serve our country. The Sierra Club will be holding events throughout the month, offering opportunities to work together for a cleaner, healthier nation. Activities will range from park cleanups to watershed-restoration projects to home-weatherization improvements.

To get involved, check the Club's Serve Outdoors website.
