Los Padres Chapter

Serving Santa Barbara & Ventura Counties

Welcome to Los Padres Chapter!

The Los Padres Chapter of the Sierra Club serves California's Santa Barbara and Ventura counties. Illustrated is the California Condor, the endangered species of which our Club's newsletter, The Condor Call, is named after. Our mountains are the primary recovery site for this largest of all of North America's birds.

This website will provide you a guide to our activities, the issues we care about and the people who lead the Club and its four local Groups.

The Club encompasses a wide and unique diversity of natural  resources.  From our wilderness areas in the St. Ynez Mountains to the coastal beauty of "America's Riviera" we have a number of America's most special places.  Enjoy them with us and please help us save the special ones that are left.  

If you need to contact somebody about a conservation issue, please get in touch with Jim Hines, email: jhcasitas@gmail.com
