Volunteer Stewardship Programs

Get Out, Give Back.

Each year over 2.5 million people enjoy the Inyo National Forest. Millions more explore Death Valley, the Bodie Hills and countless other inspiring destinations around the Eastern Sierra. Friends of the Inyo members and volunteers work alongside agency staff to ensure the places we all love stay wild, healthy and accessible.

Here are some ways to get involved:

  • Volunteer events: Join us for a volunteer trail work event in a location near you in the Eastern Sierra. Each year, we hold trail days in places like June Lake, the Mono Basin, and the Volcanic Tablelands outside of Bishop. We also celebrate events like National Public Lands Day with stewardship projects. Check our calendar for our next volunteer event.
  • Customized Group Trips*: universities, schools and businesses–even family reunions–can add stewardship to their mountain retreat agenda. We’ll work with you directly to get your hands on the land and help care for one of your favorite places in the Eastern Sierra. Contact Julia@friendsoftheinyo.org to schedule a trip.
