ESLT’s popular “Life upon the Land” evening program will now also be offered to visitors and residents in Mammoth Lakes.

The new local history program talks about how the Owens Valley and Eastern Sierra, with its warm summers, abundant water and fertile soil, made for an attractive locationto a number of farmers and ranchers that settled here in the mid 1800s. These early pioneers and settlers planted crops and raised livestock in hundreds of locations throughout Inyo and Mono counties and the towns soon grew up around them.
