If you are unable to join us for our Fundraiser, you are still able to donate to our Environmental Education Program.  Make your check payable to Sierra Club Foundation and note that this donation is for Clair Tappaan Lodge’s Environmental Education Fund.  Please mail your check to:   Clair Tappaan Lodge,  P.

Teachers and youth-group leaders working with underserved youth may apply for grant funds by submitting a funding request at least two weeks in advance of the event. To apply for a grant, please fill out our Funding Request Form and email to j2risk@gmail.com.
