BLM National Public Lands Day

We had a great day for BLM National Public Lands Day on Saturday, October 1. Friends of the Inyo really enjoyed working with the Bishop BLM, the Inyo National Forest and Eastern Sierra Land Trust.

It was amazing to see the nearly 30 volunteers plant 500 bitterbrush seedlings to help rejuvanate an area impacted by the 2015 Round Fire and critical to deer winter habitat. Volunteers also worked on the Lower Rock Creek Trail. 

Thank you to all of the event sponsors including Paradise Fire Station, Sierra Eastern Mountain Bike Assocation, Patagonia, Michell Mather Massage, the California Deer Association and the Bristlecone Chapter of the California Native Plant Society. 

Many thanks to all of the wonderful volunteers who made this event possible.
