Friends of the Inyo’s Pine Nuts Annual Impact Report for 2022 is hot off the press!

Pine nuts, a high-energy food, helped sustain Native peoples of the Eastern Sierra through the winter. Friends of the Inyo’s annual impact report, which we usually release at mid-year to celebrate the previous year’s accomplishments, is symbolically named thus to acknowledge the support of our donors, funders, and volunteers, whose generosity sustains our work of protecting and caring for the land and water of the Eastern Sierra.

The latest issue of ‘Every Last Drop,’ the Newsletter of the Keep Long Valley Green Coalition, is hot off the press!

We’re in the calm before the storm – or rather, the snowmelt! How are we going to handle all the water stored in the snowpack, when we’ve already seen plenty of flooding, avalanches, roof cave-ins and other troubles. Better yet, how will the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power handle the bountiful mess? Plenty of thoughts on those issues from Allison Weber, Keep Long Valley Green Coalition Organizer and Friends of the Inyo’s Water and Forest Campaign Manager. But if you don’t read the March issue of the KLVG Newsletter, “Every Last Drop,” you’ll never know. Happy reading…and if…

Tired of Snow? Keep praying that we get more of it. The latest issue of “Every Last Drop” will tell you why!

Is any type of precipitation good? Not really. While Californians who are used to drought might gaze at a rainy day and think “we needed this,” the situation is a bit more complicated. We need snow falling on snow to create a healthy snowpack, yet with a changing climate we are seeing increased examples of rain falling on snow, which can lead to a dangerous icy crust, increased/premature melting, and “warm snow drought.” Keep reading! And please share!
