In Illinois communities along the mighty Mississippi, Sierra Club members are advancing enviro-policy and awareness. The club's Piasa Palisades Group, named for a fierce bird in lore of the Illiniwek people and the stone bluffs towering over river and towns,is active locally and in their state.


Chris Krusa, the group's Program Chair, and Outings Chair Craig Heaton share purpose, projects and some big river paddling upcoming program highlights. Check out this south-central Illinois group of fierce protectors and lovers of Nature!
