Announcing the Eastside Pollinator Garden Project!

Transforming gardens into Pollinator Sanctuaries

Painted Lady

What's for dinner? Without pollinators, your options might be few. With one third of our food supply and at least 80% of the world's flowering plants depending on pollinators, their impact can be felt everywhere from your plate to your backyard. Pollinators are essential to a healthy environment, and - from wildflowers to working farms - the Eastern Sierra relies heavily on them. But pollinator populations everywhere are in decline, impacted by pathogens, parasites, pesticides, and the loss of open spaces.

With the Eastside Pollinator Garden Project, ESLT is now certifying pollinator habitats throughout Inyo and Mono counties. Start the process of certifying your garden as a pollinator-friendly habitat today!

Preserving Vital Lands for People and Wildlife

 

The Eastern Sierra region of California and Nevada is rich in natural beauty and a strong agricultural legacy. Its working farms and ranches are scenic, historic, and a vital part of the region’s economy and rural character. Wildlife habitat is abundant and diverse, supporting fisheries, migrating deer herds, and ancient bird fly‐ways.

Eastern Sierra Land Trust recognizes that the land we share has long been used in a variety of ways. We work to preserve a healthy balance of uses — from ranching to hiking, wildlife habitats to favorite fishing spots — that can be sustained forever, ensuring a strong local economy and healthy environment for generations to come.
