The Leopold Group

Serving Davis, Des Moines, Henry, Jefferson, Lee, Louisa, Van Buren and Wapello Counties in Southeastern Iowa.

Welcome to the Leopold Group of the Sierra Club

Below is a listing of our officers and Executive Committee. Over the past five years our group has grown tremendously. The Executive Committee meets regularly the first Wednesday of each month in Jefferson County. We focus much of our efforts on water and air quality issues, at present, and would love to expand our efforts if we could grow the volunteer base across the eight counties we serve. Volunteers are always needed for a variety of activities. If you would like to volunteer, please give us a call. We would love to hear from you!
