Who We Are

Since 1957, the Sierra Club San Diego Chapter’s Wilderness Basics Course has been training over 20,000 individuals in San Diego how to enjoy the wilderness outdoors comfortably and safely. The dedicated and passionate volunteer staff was recognized with the 2017 Special Achievement Award by the National Sierra Club.

The Course which began in response to a family getting lost and dying tragically in the nearby San Diego Mountains has evolved over the years and has provided an enormous public service to the San Diego community and encourages the enjoyment and exploration of the outdoors.

If you are interested in volunteering for the Wilderness Basics Course, we’d love to connect with you.
