Missouri generates 70% of its electricity from coal. In contrast, the Sierra Club is working to provide a brighter future for Missouri’s environment, and that includes educating on the state’s coal dependency.

An organization that’s been around for almost 130 years is working to improve Missouri’s environment for the present and the future.

The Sierra Club was founded in 1892 to try to influence environmental policy while also providing outdoor education. The Missouri Chapter contains groups located in St. Louis, Columbia, Kansas City and Springfield.
