The Central Group is the heart of the Angeles Chapter.  We encompass the area from West Hollywood through East Los Angeles, from Griffith Park through South LA, including downtown LA and a number of Gateway cities.  We are exploring, enjoying, and protecting the environment right here from the nice streets of our nation’s second largest city. And we’re looking to get you involved!

Check out our events, news, and social media sections for the latest info on what we’re up to.

If you are interested in actively pursuing your passion for the environment, please contact the Central Group Chair, Barbara Hensleigh at barbarajhensleigh@gmail.com.  There is a lot more to do, and you can make a difference.

Support your Central Group by joining or renewing your Sierra Club membership right here. A portion of your donation goes directly to the work we do in the heart of Los Angeles.

Motivation Monday

We held our first Motivation Monday on January 14 to inspire members to set powerful eco-friendly resolutions for 2019. We had a number of booths with different themes, including calculating your carbon footprint, tips for a zero waste lifestyle, upcoming hikes and outings, and creating your own digital vision board. Tell us on FB some of your own resolutions and how they’re coming along and check out this video from the event.

Certificate Of Merit

The Central Group was recently honored to receive a Certificate Of Merit from the Angeles Chapter of the Sierra Club, a Certificate Of Special Congressional Recognition from Representative Brad Sherman, and a Certificate Of Merit from the City of Los Angeles and Councilperson Pail Koretz, all for its work in reorganizing and becoming the 14th Group of the Chapter. This was no small task but took enormous effort by a group of very dedicated volunteers. We look forward to our great future together protecting and enjoying the planet right here in the heart of Los Angeles.

Corralitas Public Stairway

The Verdugo Hills group in conjunction with the central group are working to beautify the Corralitas stairway. Saturday October 27th at 9:30 am we had Glendale College students working in the garden. This stairway is right next to the red car property and our eventual goal is for that to be a park/community garden. Something other than another building!

East LA Murals

OCT 20 | Los Angeles

Join us for an 1 mile urban hike as we explore the murals that truly express the natural and cultural history of East LA. All as a fundraiser for Sierra Club Central Group! Lunch by La Terraza in City Terrace is included. This event sold out last time it was hosted at the LACMA “Art of Resistance” show, so now is your best chance to check out this historic tour.
