About Sages Pic.jpg


The Canyon Sages is Topanga’s first and only social and service organization designed for Topanga’s older generation. The Sages was born in 2009 as a committee of the Topanga Town Council set up to create activities for seniors and reach out to those seniors isolated or in need. In the fall of 2013, the Sages changed partners, and is now allied with the Topanga Community Club, under their non-profit umbrella.

The Canyon Sages now numbers 433 members (and counting) and charges no dues. We have over 100 volunteers of all ages, who bring dishes to Sages Socials, (check our Calendar for these once a month events) now serving about 50 a month, run a roster of low-cost classes and free clubs, share information, lobby for senior discounts to local businesses and plan informative lectures and exciting special events.

We don’t discriminate against younger folks – the 50-somethings. Membership is open to anyone willing to say they’re Sage-age. And many classes and all our evening programs and lectures are open to all ages. We are dedicated to the Topanga Spirit of Life: Exuberance, Merriment and Mentoring. Be a Sage, or Buddy with a Sage – Be a Member or Volunteer! We welcome you and your friends!


Volunteers meet on the 3rd Wednesday of most months at 2:30 at the Topanga Library. Check our Calendar for the latest in scheduling.

Please donate to support the Canyon Sages programs, including a scholarship program that allows recipients to attend our classes for free.  Also, due to a generous gift from the former Third District Supervisor, Zev Yarovslavsky, we have the seed money to build a mini "Senior Center" on the grounds of the Topanga Community Club, providing much needed space for additional classes and activities for our Canyon Sages.
