Caring for the Eastern Sierra, Year After Year

Help care for your favorite trails in the Eastern Sierra by funding Friends of the Inyo's Eastern Sierra Trail Ambassadors.

This summer, we're partnering with the Inyo National Forest to place Friends of the Inyo staff on some of the most popular trails in the Eastern Sierra, places like Little Lake Valley or the Crystal Lake trail near Mammoth. They'll provide postive outreach and support to the public while maintaining trails that get heavily used. You can help make this program happen with a donation.

For more information, check our Eastern Sierra Trail Ambassadors page.
