The December monthly meeting of the Sierra Club – Rincon Group will highlight a slide show of Vietnam:
Thursday, December 8th – The Many Wonders of Vietnam –
Sierra Club members Tim Wernette and Carolyn Brown will show a slide presentation on their Sierra Club Vietnam Adventure trips, highlighting activities in southern, central and northern Vietnam. These trips include hiking, snorkeling, kayaking and cultural tours. Vietnam is an incredibly beautiful and interesting country and this presentation will highlight some of its most fascinating natural features.
The meeting starts at 7 p.m. at Volunteer Southern Arizona, 924 N. Alvernon Way. This is the new name of the Volunteer Center of Southern Arizona at the same location, between Speedway and Broadway.
The Sierra Club is the nation’s largest grass-roots environmental organization (founded in 1892).
The Rincon Group of the Grand Canyon Chapter, headquartered in Tucson, Arizona, promotes the Sierra Club motto to explore, enjoy and protect the planet.
The Rincon Group supports education, environmental activism, and careful, informed and caring stewardship of resources as a means to preserve the planet for future generations. To that end, the Rincon Group provides educational monthly programs concerning environmental issues affecting Southern Arizona, alerts to, and information on, getting involved in environmental issues (with an emphasis on those issues of interest in Southern Arizona), the opportunity to participate in outings to explore nature in Southern Arizona, and periodic newsletters which provide articles on environmental issues affecting Southern Arizona.

And coming up on their January 12 meeting, an update on the Rosemont Mine.
I used to be an avid hiker and backpacker, and have hiked with the Sierra Club in various states and countries, but never in Vietnam.
