The Orange-Chatham Group includes the following counties: Alamance, Caswell, Chatham, and Orange.
The Sierra Club was founded in 1893 by the writer and naturalist John Muir. In the past century the Sierra Club has been a tireless voice for the thoughtful preservation of our natural heritage not only for our own well-being but for generations to come. The Orange-Chatham Group was originally called the Research Triangle Group and now has over 1600 members. The Orange-Chatham Group is one of 13 local groups in the North Carolina Chapter, which represents more than 14,000 members statewide.
