Sierra Club 

Discover the Great Outdoors...
...In Your Own Backyard!

Welcome to the Orange County Sierrans (OCSS)! We are a section of the Angeles Chapter of the Sierra Club. While supporting the Sierra club in their environmental issues, our primary focus is on exploring and enjoying the wild areas around us. Orange County is an area rich in protected regional and wilderness parks and hundreds of miles of trails for us to explore!
We welcome people of all backgrounds and ages. We love to meet new people and make new friends, and many lasting friendships have been formed on our various events. You do not need to be single or be a Sierra Club Member in order to take part in our many outings and activities. From hiking and skiing, to movie nights and dances, you are sure to find an event you will enjoy and many new friends await you!

Program: African Photo Safari
Donna Specht 714-963-6345 donnaspecht@juno.com

Angeles Chapter Sierra Club members Steve and Linda Velasco will share photos taken on their recent 6-week journey to Africa. Their adventure took them to Rwanda where they trekked for hours through the Parc National de Volcans to observe three mountain gorilla families. The next stop was South Africa where trackers and guides helped discover the indigenous and endangered African wildlife including wild dogs, Rhinoceros, Elephant and Leopards. Their journey ended in Namibia where they experienced the hot and desolate Namib Desert including the mountainous sand dunes of Sossuvlei, the red Kalahari Desert, a stand Quiver Trees, one of the ten most endangered trees on the planet. The journey continued on to Luederitz where there were wild horses living in the stark desert and the abandoned diamond rush town of Kolmanskuppe built during the turn of the last century. The local legend says the diamonds were literally lying on the ground. The town is now being consumed by the ever-shifting sand dunes. During their time in Namibia they discovered a surprisingly varied selection of wild inhabitants living in the unforgiving desert environment. Bring a friend and come and join us at REI Tustin, 2962 El Camino Real, Tustin, CA 92782. Hike on over to the Community Room.
