Give something back to the public lands you love on a Sierra Club volunteer vacation! Accommodating all levels of skill and stamina, service trips feature tasks like building and maintaining trails, repairing meadows, helping archaeologists, and eradicating non-native vegetation.
Free days are yours to hike, swim, or simply relax among the spectacular surroundings. And best of all, as The New York Times recently pointed out, "Sierra Club keeps prices low." Learn more about the service trips program on our Volunteer Vacations page.
