Call for Submissions!
Sierra Club Canada Atlantic Chapter is currently seeking submission for the
Spring issue of The Sandpiper Quarterly.

Do you know about an environmental controversy in your hometown that isn't
getting the attention it should? Are you passionate about climate change and
how it affects us Atlantic Canadians? Is there an eco-initiative in your
neighbourhood that you’re proud of?

We’re always looking for volunteers to contribute articles and photos or
graphic design and editorial skills to help put the newsletter together. Of
course, the suggestions above are just some of the things we want to hear
about. We want to hear about what interests you. The theme is seasonal, but
otherwise we invite articles of all shapes, size, and colour!

About the Sandpiper
The Sandpiper is a quarterly newsletter that reaches Sierra Club members in
all four Atlantic provinces. It's created by our volunteers and aims to
spread the word about environmental issues, activities, and leaders. Our
focus is Atlantic Canada, but we also try to link national and international
issues to opportunities for local action.
