WHY:

We are drawn to this area for its spectacular and dramatic scenery, the variety of recreation opportunities, incredible natural resources and a local, community-based quality of life.

And we aren’t the only ones:

• Tourism is the Eastern Sierra’s primary economic draw, and our area’s public lands support a great number and variety of recreational visitors, both local and non-local.

• Last year, the Inyo National Forest recorded 4 million visitors to hike, fish, bird watch, climb, hunt and camp—and numbers are increasing.

Public lands are an asset to our businesses, our lifestyle and our community.

The Problem: Public Lands at a Tipping Point

Budget shortfalls limit the Forest Service’s ability to manage the impacts of and support all these visitors, affecting services such as picking up trash and providing interpretive rangers.

The Solution: Friends of the Inyo’s stewardship programs fill some of those unmet needs. Last year:

• 700 hard-working volunteers cared for public lands from Death Valley and Mount Whitney and Mammoth to Mono Lake

• 6,000 hours of trail maintenance, road restoration, campsite restoration, trash cleanup and watershed restoration were performed

• $122,000 worth of contributed hours were generated
