The Foundation and its Mission
Sierra Club Canada Foundation (SCCF) is a registered charity whose mission is to be a voice for the earth. We work to protect and preserve the natural environment and to empower people to be stewards of the earth in their communities. Since 1971, the SCCF has funded tens of millions of dollars’ worth of important work, from small local projects to large, multi-year campaigns with many volunteers, organizers, and scientists.
Sierra Club Canada Foundation (SCCF) has been instrumental in advocating for green areas in urban settings for years in Alberta’s capital region.
We are now accepting registrations for Wild Child Nature Immersion Summer 2020 Programs.
