Sierra Club Success

Thumbs up The Sierra Club is basking in the recent recognition it’s gotten from a couple of high-profile organizations.

First, the venerable National Geographic named Sierra Club Outings the best adventure-travel company in the “hiking and trekking" category, which is quite an accomplishment, considering the stiff competition. We topped other organizations for which we have great respect, including Country Walkers, Classic Journeys, and the Wayfarers.

Then one of our all-time-favorite enviro-blogs, Grist, named Bruce Nilles as their eco-hero of the year. Nilles, who directs the Sierra Club's anti-coal campaign, has been a critical player in shutting down coal plants in the Midwest. (Fun fact: Nilles and Sierra Club founder John Muir both went to the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Go Bucky!)
