Volunteering with Friends of the Inyo offers a unique way to get involved and give back to the exceptional public lands you love. We have opportunities for groups and individuals that vary in both length and project work. From spending a few hours maintaining a trail in the Mammoth Lakes Basin to a few days working in wilderness, volunteering is a great way to connect with the Eastern Sierra. Join our email list and stay tuned to on how to get involved in caring for public lands in the Eastern Sierra.

Volunteer Events

Join us on one of our volunteer events. From annual events like June Lake Trails Day to spur-of-the-moment events designed to help out the Inyo National Forest or the Bureau of Land Management, you can join a great community for a morning or day of work improving special places in the Eastern Sierra. Check out our calendar for the next volunteer event.

Wilderness Volunteers

Wilderness volunteers are integral to the ability of land management agencies and Friends of the Inyo to care for these special places. Volunteers perform a variety of projects including cleaning up campsites, repairing and maintaining trails, and monitoring. At the same time, they get to spend some active quality time in some of our most beautiful places.

Group Projects

Friends of the Inyo works with schools and other groups to provide meaningful, fun experiences caring for the Eastern Sierra. In partnership with the BLM and the US Forest Service, we tailor projects to meet the needs of the land and the interests of the group. If you are interested in arranging a special service project for your group, send us an email or call 760-873-6500.
