Kentucky Sierra Club Activist Weekend

An Annual Cumberland Chapter Event

Activist Weekend is an annual event that takes place on the last weekend of every January.

Fun, issue education, activist training, and outings are all part of this weekend designed to help our members and volunteers learn more about the conservation issues impacting Kentucky and how to address them.

Trainings vary from year to year and cover a varity of topics such as training to become a certified Sierra Club outings leader, lobbying, campaign planning, first aid, and more.

Educational sessions on conservation topics address issues of concern in Kentucky, such as Mountaintop Removal Mining, Natural Gas Fracking, Air toxics and water pollution concerns related to coal-fired power plants, Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations or "CAFOs," and pending legislation related to our conservation issues of concern.

This weekend always includes an excellent keynote speaker for the Saturday evening banquet of excellent, locally produced foods, followed by an evening of music, dancing, movies, bonfires and other entertainment. Sunday usually has several outings scheduled.

Students from across the state contribute to the weekend in many wonderful ways and we offer scholarships to help students attend the conference.

As registration, scheduling, and other information becomes available for the next Activist Weekend, we will post it here.
