Bill on Lower Rock Creek

Bill has been a volunteer and member with Eastern Sierra Land Trustfor several years, anda frequent attendee at ESLT events most often with camera in hand, ready to capture the action.

As a member of our Board, he’ll have an even greater influence on conservation efforts in the Eastern Sierra, and we are all thrilled to now officially have him on our team.

Bill has always had a strong interest in conservation. He has loved the Eastern Sierra since he began camping and climbing here in the late 1960s. He climbed with the Sierra Peaks Section of the LA Sierra Club Chapter, and later went on to exploreother mountain ranges around the world. But the Eastern Sierra kept a special place in his heart, and he continued toreturn to the areayear after year. In 1988, he built a home and movedtoMammoth Lakes; todayhelives in a log home in Swall Meadows.

“My passion is fine art mountain photography, particularly in the Eastern Sierra,” Bill told us. “I couldn’t imagine losing these incredible views to development. This landscape inspires me every day, and I’m glad to have a hand in protecting it forever.”

Thank you, Bill, for your dedication to conservation in our region and for sharing your beautiful artwork with us all!
