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.
For five years, Friends of the Inyo has partnered with Inyo National Forest, the Town of Mammoth Lakes, and the Mammoth Lakes Trails and Public Access Foundation to host a series of fun and effective projects around the Mammoth Lakes Trail System. Join us for a few hours and make a real difference in one of the most heavily used areas on the Inyo. We have five projects scheduled in 2013. Check out our calendar or click one of the event links on the left for more details.
Wilderness volunteers are integral to the ability of land management agencies and Friends of the Inyo to care these special places. Volunteers perform a variety of work 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.
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 taylor projects to meet the needs of the land and the interests of the group. If you have a group that wants to spend some time getting their hands dirty and enjoying your public lands, send us an email or call 760-873-6500.
