The Monongahela (“Mon”) Group

The Monongahela (“Mon”) Group of the West Virginia Chapter of Sierra Club includes members from 5 counties – Harrison, Marion, Monongalia, Preston and Taylor. We hope to increase awareness of environmental threats and create opportunities for active involvement of all sorts. This may be simply helping with an event or a group function, or holding volunteer office or leading or joining outings or becoming an activist and lobbying or demonstrating for change.

For more information about the Mon Group, including its current activities and events, go to Monongahela (Mon) Group
