Eastern Sierra Land Trust ready to spring forward

The Eastern Sierra Land Trust is ready to put this winter season behind and spring forward into sunny weather events.

ESLT works to protect vital lands and preserve a healthy balance of uses—from ranching to biking, wildlife habitats to favorite fishing spots—that can be sustained forever, ensuring a strong local economy and healthy environment for generations to come. 

To celebrate the change in season, ESLT is hosting several events … all for free. 

On Tuesday, May 1, ESLT is inviting the public to the Eat for ESLT fundraiser at Whiskey Creek. Participants can tell their server after dining at the Bishop or Mammoth Whiskey Creek to send the profits of their dinner to benefit the conservation work of Eastern Sierra Land Trust. 

Brown Bag Lunch Series returns Wednesday, May 2, from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. at the ESLT garden. Steve Baldwin and Bruce Willey, the founders of Bishop Creek Farms, will speak about their community supported agriculture and having a blast providing fresh, healthy produce to the community. 

On Thursday, May 3, from 3:30 p.m. 5:30 p.m., ESLT will host its third annual Gardenfest, a celebration of the beginning of the 2012 garden season. Participants will receive gardening tips from Master Gardeners and have the opportunity to buy local farm products. Bring extra seeds for the Seed Swap and purchase seedlings from 4-H to get going on a garden. This event will take place in the ESLT Garden at 176 Home St. in Bishop.
