The Rincon Group has three main categories of meetings/programs:
- Issues Programs
- Conservation Committee Meetings
- Executive Committee Meetings
Issues Programs: Issues Programs are on the second Thursday of each month at 7 pm. Open to the public - presentation to be announced (see below). Our Issues Programs are held at the SEIU (Service Employees International Union) (unless otherwise noted). Catch up on the status of local issues, discuss environmental topics, and meet friendly folks. The SEIU (Service Employees International Union) building is at 1600 N. Tucson Blvd. (one block south of Elm Street). There is free, on-site parking for these free events. Programs are held on the second Thursday of every month (excluding July & August) from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm.
Conservation Committee Meetings: Conservation Committee Meetings are held on the last Thursday of each month at 6 pm. [No Conservation Committee Meetings are scheduled for the month of July. The November and December meetings are combined and occur the evening of the first Thursday in December.] All Sierra Club members who are interested in current conservation issues and in becoming an activist, should attend Conservation Committee Meetings. It's a great place to network with other activists, learn about local environmental issues and to work together to further our cause. We are re-energizing our conservation work by networking all our activists into a new conservation committee. Conservation Committee Meetings are held in the main floor conference room of the Historic Y, 738 N. 5th Ave., near University Blvd.
Executive Committee Meetings: Executive Committee Meetings are only open to Sierra Club members. The Executive Committee meets on the last Thursday of each month immediately following the Conservation Committee Meeting in the main floor conference room of the Historic Y at 738 N. 5th Ave., near University Blvd. [No Executive Committee Meetings are scheduled for the month of July. The November and December meetings are combined and occur the evening of the first Thursday in December.]

Thursday, March 13th - Saving the San Pedro River - Join Steve Pawlowski, Grand Canyon Chapter Water Sentinels Program Coordinator, to learn about one of most ecologically significant rivers in the Northern Hemisphere, the San Pedro River. Steve will talk about the ecology and conservation of the river; the hydrologic, geomorphic, and biological processes that shape the San Pedro’s ecosystems; current threats to the river; local environmental politics; and the current volunteer efforts of the Water Sentinels. Come learn how we are using citizen science, “hands-on” conservation, and advocacy to help shape a sustainable future for one of this country’s “Last Great Places.”
