Our Mission

Our mission is to ensure the public lands of the Eastern Sierra exist in an intact, healthy natural state for people and wildlife through preservation, stewardship, exploration, and education.


Founded in 1986, FOI was originally organized to comment on the Inyo National Forest forest planning process. Since then, FOI has evolved into its current form working on a broad range of public land issues that impact Inyo and Mono Counties.
