November, the month to give thanks for so many things, is here.

At Friends of the Inyo, we are thankful for YOU, our supporters, followers, sponsors, grantors, volunteers and friends.

Following a trying summer of wildfires, poor air quality and temporary National Forest closure orders in our state, fall feels like an especially welcome respite this year. In the October Issue of our Juniper E-Newsletter, we present a recap of the work Friends of the Inyo’s Trail Ambassadors did toward the end of the summer to protect and care for the public lands of the Eastern Sierra despite various challenges; a foretaste of fun outdoor events we have coming up this month and next; an update on our campaign to Protect Conglomerate Mesa; an invitation to enjoy our linguistic blog posts in celebration of National Hispanic Heritage…
What do protection of the Sierra Nevada Red Fox; the removal of cattle exclosures in the Cottonwood Creek Wilderness; efforts to protect Conglomerate Mesa and Long Valley from exploratory drilling; an attempt to educate Inyo and Mono Counties’ Spanish-speaking residents about public lands management in the U.S….and volunteer cleanup and restoration events in Bridgeport and the Alabama Hills on back-to-back Saturdays in September, including National Public Lands Day, Sept. 25, have in common? They all align with Friends of the Inyo’s mission and you can read about them—and more!—in this issue of our Juniper E-Newsletter.
In this edition of the Juniper, you will be introduced to first issue of the Keep Long Valley Green Coalition’s new e-mail newsletter, Every Last Drop: Exposés on the L.A./Eastern Sierra Water Wars; an opportunity to make your voice heard in the struggle to Protect Conglomerate Mesa from foreign mining interests; Friends of the Inyo’s new education/outreach efforts to Inyo and Mono counties’ growing Hispanic community (en español); the continuing stewardship and interpretive work of our Trail Ambassadors; and more!
