Today

Fall Highball Stewardship Project

This year's Fall Highball will feature two stewardship project options: choose between the Buttermilks and the Volcanic Tablelands for a fun morning's work. Meet at 8:30am on Sunday, November 5 in the Black Sheep parking lot. We'll have free breakfast and coffee, and an exclusive prize giveaway just for stewardship volunteers! The event will finish up around 12pm, so there will be plenty of time to climb that afternoon. Don't miss this chance to give back to our treasured local climbing areas.

Oak Creek Bitterbrush Planting

Mount Whitney Fish Hatchery Oak Creek Rd, Independence, CA

'Tis the season...to plant bitterbrush! Volunteers plant bitterbrush near Convict Lake this November. Photo by Wendy Schneider Join Friends of the Inyo, the Fort Independence Indian Reservation, the California Native Plants Society, and the Inyo National Forest for an afternoon of planting native shrubs along the banks of Oak Creek. Oak Creek was devastated by a fire and flood nearly a decade ago. The shrubs we plant will help to stabilize streambank soils, restore ecosystem function, and protect cultural sites within this beautiful riparian area. We'll meet at the Mount Whitney Fish Hatchery just north of Independence at 1pm on Thursday, December 14....
