The Eastern Sierra. Death Valley. The Mojave desert and peaks. Wild, undeveloped and iconic.
Inyo County wants to put industrial-scale solar there.
These regions house the highest, lowest, hottest, and darkest places in the lower 48 states, as well as numerous unique and endemic species of plants and animals. Riparian zones in the Owens and Amargosa Valleys are the rare blend of water and desert, creating habitat found nowhere else on the planet.
The Amargosa Conservancy teamed up with the Owens Valley Committee and California Native Plant Society Bristlecone Chapter, to petition Inyo County to drop these areas from consideration for wholesale industrialization.
If you agree and would like the Eastern Sierra and the Death Valley Region to stay the way they are- sign the petition! Share with your friends. We only have a week left to change the direction of Inyo County Solar planning.
