Military Families and Veterans Initiative

Outings and Trips

The Sierra Club is excited to offer a number of deeply discounted or free outdoor adventures and expeditions for our military and veteran communities! As always, we offer a 10% discount on our national outings!
Please get in touch directly with the program managers for the outings listed below.

In coordination with the University of Michigan Department of Natural Resources, the following outings providers will be asking participants questions about their experiences before and after the trips to determine the benefit of the outdoors for all veterans and military service members, families and spouses.
