A Great Day Outdoors with Military Families in Virginia

On Saturday, June 21st, Sierra Club Military Outdoors and the Bureau of Land Management hosted the "America's Heroes and America's Public Lands event at the BLM's Meadowood facility in Virginia. Steve Ellis, BLM Deputy Director, John Ruh, BLM Eastern States Director, Dan Chu, Sierra Club Wild Senior Campaign Director, and Allison Chin, former Sierra Club Board President joined over over 275 members of the military community and their families in enjoying activities such as as fishing, archery, hiking, rock wall climbing, and wild horses. These families were also able to connect to organizations such as Blue Star Families, National Military Family Association, US Fish and Wildlife, The National Forrest Service, Warrior Hike, and Team River Runner to find ways to continue to get outside. This event was the first conducted under our MOU with the BLM, signed last year to cooperate in serving the military community on public lands. We are excited for our next event, a wilderness trek in Cedar Mesa, Utah in October.
