"We believe it is particularly important to preserve open space
in the Eastern Sierra for future generations. People come from
all over to renew themselves by hiking, fishing, or riding here."

Martin Luther King Jr. Community Volunteer Day (RESCHEDULED)
Saturday, January 28 from 9:00 am - 12:30 pm
Meet at the Bishop Paiute Cultural Center (2300 W. Line St. in Bishop) at 8:45am
To honor the memory of Martin Luther King Jr., join us January 28 as we team up with local Sierra Nevada AmeriCorps Partnership Members, friends from the Bishop Paiute Tribe, and the Bureau of Land Management for a volunteer day at Rattlesnake village: a prehistoric occupation site on the Volcanic Tablelands.
Rattlesnake Village is home to more than 42 rock features, including 16 home sites, 19 milling locations, and 10 rock art panels. Alongside Greg Haverstock, Archaeologist from the Bureau of Land Management, you'll see and learn more about this incredible site as you remove trash, pull weeds, and help protect this special place for future generations.
To learn more and sign up, contact Indigo Johnson, ESLT AmeriCorps Member and Education Coordinator, at email@example.com.
Note: originally scheduled for 1/14/17, this event was postponed until January 28 due to flooding conditions on the road to Rattlesnake Village.
Please check back soon, as we're frequently adding new opportunities to get out and explore, and to learn about how you can impact the future of conservation in the Eastern Sierra.
