and radishes. The primary endeavor of the Harvey Broome group is to get more people directly involved in environmental issues that affect Knox County, like development, urban sprawl, and transportation. The group plans to pay special attention to the proposed redevelopment of the Fulton Bellows site near the UT campus. The goal isn’t to hold up work, Hill says, but to make sure that development is done in an environmentally sound way. There are six Sierra Club groups in the state of Tennessee. The Harvey Broome group, which has about 1,500 members, is named for a Fountain City resident who was dedicated to wilderness preservation and was instrumental in the creation of the Wilderness Act, which was signed by President Lyndon Johnson in 1964. The act created the National Wilderness Preservation System, which now contains over 700 wilderness areas. Many members of the group are simply ﬁnancial supporters, but its membership is large enough to affect change, should it organize around an issue, says Hill. Some members are happy to speak up on their own. Harvey Broome Vice Chair David Reister joined the Sierra Club while living in California in 1970, but wasn’t involved with the local group until the energy efﬁcient home he built in Solway was threatened by the proposed Orange Route beltway. Since participating in that battle, he has focused his attention on energy issues and the completion of the Cumberland Trail. At the age of 70, he is still dedicated to preserving the environment. The Harvey Broome group has program meetings on second Tuesdays of each month, and business meetings on fourth
Tuesdays. All meetings are at 7 p.m. at TVUUC. For more information: Robin Hill at 966-9435 or www.tennessee.sierraclub. org/broome
