In March, Friends of the Inyo partnered with the Access Fund, Bishop BLM, and the Flash Foxy Climbing Festival to put on a morning of clean up in the Tablelands. The Flash Foxy Climbing Festival brings young women to Bishop for the weekend, many of whom have never climbed outdoors or recreated on public lands. This event was a great opportunity to connect young folks to conservation efforts in the Bishop area.
In all, we picked up 80 pounds of glass from a restoration site at the end of Quarry Road, cleaned over 40 fire rings, removed 1,000 pounds of trash, and picked up invasive Russian Thistle around the pit campground and the Sad and Happy Boulder. Thanks to all the volunteers who braved heinous weather. We’ll see you again next year.
