Abstract:

The Sierra Club, Maryland Chapter, can trace its origins to the establishment of the club's Southeastern Chapter in 1968. This chapter eventually split into several smaller groups, among them the Potomac Chapter, which had members in Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, Virginia, West Virginia, and the District of Columbia. The Maryland Chapter monitors legislation, works to save natural areas from development, sponsors outings, and disseminates information on environmental matters. The chapter's records include minutes, newsletters, treasurer's reports, bylaws, and calendars of activities. An additional box received in 2007 (Accession 2007-33), relates to endangered species, wetlands protection, waste management, recycling, mass transit, roads, erosion, and pesticides.
