Sierra Magazine: "Explore, Enjoy, and Protect the Planet"

Sierra_Club_mag.jpg
I used to read the Sierra Club's magazine Sierra religiously, that is until I became jaded over this large environmental group founded by John Muir. The truth is, despite my own feelings about the group endorsing Clorox products, is publications like Sierra are full of great articles and photographs that reach many individuals that would not seek or access this environmental information otherwise.

This month's magazine features the following articles:

AT HOME IN A HOLE IN THE ROCK
From ancient cliff dwellers to cowboys to modern hikers, everyone craves a good cave.
MICHAEL ENGELHARD

THE LAST OF THE SOUTHWEST
A mountain biker discovers the veiled beauty of New Mexico's Otero Mesa.
PETER FRICK-WRIGHT

MONUMENTAL PLACES
Hey, Mr. President: Save these treasures!

TWO WHEELS, NOT FOUR
Gear for getting out of your gas-guzzler.
MICHAEL FRANK

PIRATES OF THE RAINFOREST
Hunting moss poachers in the Olympus Peninsula.
GREGG BLEAKNEY

FRACTURED LIVES
The detritus of Pennsylvania's natural gas boom.
EDWARD HUMES


Sierra is definitely a good read, but the Sierra Club is not without controversy. The "secret" donations of $26 million from the natural gas industry has left many people wondering about the group's ability to live up to its ethos.

I prefer to give my money to smaller, more localized environmental groups.
