An integral part the Sierra Club Foundation's membership committee, Lynn McKenzie developed an easy-to-understand toolkit to help the Sierra Club increase grassroots activism and member involvement--and she even went on the road to train its statewide members. Lynn also volunteers at the Sierra Club office and donates generously to the silent auction.
