Healthy Communities

We at Sierra Club Prairie understand that it can be difficult for people to find informative, relevant and well sourced information when it comes to news that relates to the health of our communities.

That is why we have created this webpage as a central, easy to access site to provide you with a quick link to information that is relevant to the health and well being of you and your community.

Publication Date: 
September 1, 2010
On August 31st, 2010, a study which was led by University of Alberta researchers was published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, which conclusively shows that numerous highly toxic pollutants are being released into the Athabasca River and its tributaries by the development of the oil sands. The levels exceeded both federal and provincial government guidelines. The report is available for download here.

Prairie Groups

The structure of the Sierra Club is a series of nested groups. Within the Prairie chapter, there are several groups – the role of the chapter office is to support the groups, coordinate regional campaigns, act as a liaison between groups and national office, and lead advocacy efforts on a regional or provincial scale.


The Edmonton group currently has several committees and programs including; the Outings program, the Environmental 911 Program, Pesticide Elimination and Reduction Committee, and the Smart Growth Committee. See Edmonton Group News...
