In recognition of the environmental benefits of a plant-based diet, the Sierra  Club  is  pleased  to announce a week  long  vegan “volunteer  vacation”  in  Yosemite National Park, California this July 6–13.

Participants  will  assist  park  staff  with  a variety  of   work   projects to  improve  this  iconic destination.  Meals will feature tasty, healthful, and nourishing vegan recipes.  There will be plenty of down time to explore and to savor the fresh air, intelligent conversation, and majestic scenery.

Why: Switching from the standard American diet to a plant-based vegan diet has been found to reduce greenhouse gas emission more than switching from a standard American car to a hybrid.  This trip offers curious newcomers the chance to try a plant-based diet that provides abundant energy while satisfying the taste buds.

Who’s Invited: Anyone looking to "give back" to this special park in the company of other outdoors enthusiasts.

More Information:  View  photos and the full  trip brochure or contact trip leader Robert Groff at

 Part of  the largest  grassroots  environmental organization in  the country,  Sierra  Club  Outings  provides  environmentally  friendly  outdoor  adventures—from Tahoe to Tibet—for people of all ages, abilities, and interests.
