Dallas City Council Election Endorsements
The Sierra Club’s Political Committee had made endorsements for Mayor and City Council districts in Dallas. Click here to see our list of endorsed candidates.
Early voting starts April 22 and ends April 30. Election day is Saturday, May 4 and the (likely) runoff election is June 8. We urge everyone who cares about the Metroplex environment to support, and vote for, our endorsed candidates. It is critical that we have a pro-environment mayor and city council to tackle important issues like open space, parks, transportation, environmental justice, air pollution, and climate change.
Please consider making a generous donation to our political action committee so that we can help our endorsed candidates get elected.

Colorado Bend State Park Group Campout - You Are All Invited
Camp, Chill, or Hike at Colorado Bend State Park
Dallas Sierra Club has booked a fantastic riverside group campsite for the weekend of April 26-28. Click here for details. This is a big State Park near Bend, Texas, on the north edge of the Hill Country. Spicewood Springs, Gorman Falls, the River Trail or all three are great hike destinations for Saturday morning or afternoon. This trip is good for families, couples and individuals, but you’ll need to sign up early, as the riverside group camp allows only forty campers. Take the back roads to the park to see the spring wildflowers and join us for a great weekend campout!
Wilderness Navigation Two Night Class - May 7 and 8 (Tuesday and Wednesday)
Some walks in the woods are pretty easy, but journeys of all lengths can turn from amazing to catastrophic if you can't find your way. Learn the fundamentals of navigating your way in the wilderness in this fun and comprehensive two-night class. Among the subjects covered are: looking for and purchasing different type maps, how to read maps, how not to get lost, map use if you do get lost, different kinds of compasses and how to use your compass. There will be some discussion about GPS, but our main focus is learning how to use a map and compass so you're not trusting your navigation (and life) to something that takes batteries. If you have a compass, bring it. If not, we'll have extras you can use and will show you what to look for when you purchase your own.
