Professional Stewardship Crews
Since 2008, Friends of the Inyo has employed professional, paid crews that work on public lands from the Inyo Mountains to Mono Lake. Each year we partner with a wide variety of local public lands agencies like the Inyo National Forest, the Bishop BLM, and the National Park Service, government entities like Mono County, and even corporate partners like Patagonia and Westin Resorts. In 2017, these projects include fire ring restoration and clean up in the Ansel Adams and John Muir Wildernesses, trail maintenance in the Hoover Wilderness, and front country route restoration in the Inyo Mountains, Mono Craters, and Buttermilks. The “Stew Crew” will also be watering planted bitterbrush to help restore critical deer winter habitat in the Round Fire burn area near Swall Meadows.
As always, we’re flexible and have the capacity to address agency needs, while also integrating feedback from our members to ensure the most impactful projects get carried out on the ground.
Your donations and membership contributions directly support our work on the land.
