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.
