About Inner City Outings - St. Louis
The mission of the Sierra Club's Inner City Outings program is to promote personal development by linking cultures, fostering respect of self and others and providing leadership skills to promote appreciation and protection of our local and global environments through a process of personal growth and sharing. The Inner City Outings program meets these goals by providing safe and enjoyable outdoor experiences for persons who might not otherwise have them.
Our goal is to introduce children to nature. Many of the youth who are involved with Inner City Outings have never been to our local parks and conservation areas. We observe and talk about flora, fauna, habitats, the interconnections between species, and man’s impact on the environment. Our leaders give groups time to just have fun, explore, and soak in nature. Sierra Club Inner City Outings is a community outreach program that provides opportunities for St. Louis urban youth and adults to explore, enjoy and protect the natural world.
