June

Pollinator Garden Tour

Saturday, June 3

10 am - 2 pm

Meet at Eastern Sierra Land Trust (250 N. Fowler St. in Bishop)

Since Eastern Sierra Land Trust's Eastside Pollinator Garden Project kicked off in 2014, locals across the Eastern Sierra have been hard at work creating beautiful native plant gardens alive with bees, butterflies, hummingbirds, and other pollinators. During the Garden Tour, you will have the chance to see these lovely gardens in bloom, win prizes, and much more.

Prior to the start of the tour, Eastern Sierra Land Trust will be hosting a free outdoor yoga class in the ESLT office backyard, beginning at 9am. Join us for morning yoga, then hit the road as we tour local pollinator gardens!

For more information and to obtain your garden map and directions, please contact Indigo Johnson, ESLT Education Coordinator & AmeriCorps Member, at indigo@eslt.org or (760) 873-4554.
