Local Sierra Club to present ‘Visiting the Grand Canyon’

Monday, November 13, 2023, at 7:15 p.m. via Zoom or in person at Frankfort Public Library

CHICAGO, Ill. (November 2, 2023) – Sierra Club’s Sauk-Calumet Group will host a program on “Visiting the Grand Canyon” on Monday, November 13, at 7:15 p.m.

The program will feature the stories and photos of Sauk-Calumet members Christy Mazrimas-Ott, Gregg Ott, Dorelle Ackerman, and Lois Lauer, who travelled to the Grand Canyon in the past year. The group experienced a variety of weather and trail conditions, from sunny dry hiking days to wintry blizzards. Throughout the varied weather, the views of the mile-deep, 18-mile-wide canyon were stunning. The travelers will share their photos and tell of their experiences exploring this national treasure carved out by the Colorado River over the past 6 million years. Attendees will also pick up some tips on preparing for their own Grand Canyon visit.

November’s meeting will be a hybrid meeting — at the Frankfort Public Library as well as on the Zoom online platform.

The Frankfort Public Library is located at 21119 Pfeiffer Road, at the corner of Pfeiffer Road and Rt. 30, about a mile east of LaGrange Road along Rt. 30 in Frankfort.
