Brief History of Pilipinas Sierra

The idea of the organization was nurtured in the early part of 1992 and slowly took shape starting mid-1993. A series of organizational meetings were held in the latter part of 1993 and Pilipinas Sierra was formally organized in a "Vision, Mission and Team Building Climb" which was held on January 23 and 24, 1994 at Mt. Susong Dalaga in Baras, Rizal. The organization was registered with the Philippine Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on December 28, 1994 as a civic/environmental organization.

Purposes of the Organization

  1. To promote the protection of the environment among members and the public in general and to advocate the preservation of irreplaceable wildlife, wilderness areas, scenic trails, and old growth forests, wetlands and marine ecosystems and to explore and enjoy the wild places of the earth.
  2. To promote the outdoors and trail hiking tradition in the Philippines and bring as many people as possible in direct contact with mother nature, so that by themselves, they will form through these experiences, the commitment of preserving and protecting the environment.
