Welcome to the Bishop Field Office
The Bishop Field Office cares for a unique vestige of wild California, emphasizing conservation, education and partnerships. Our mission is to sustain the health, diversity and productivity of the 750,000 acres of your BLM public lands we are entrusted to manage. These public lands in Mono and Inyo counties span the length of the eastern Sierra from Topaz Lake to Owens Lake in a region dominated by public agency lands. The Inyo and Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forests, the major federal land administrators in the area, manage over 2 million acres, while the Los Angeles Dept. of Water and Power (DWP) manages 310,000 acres. Private land ownership comprises only about 2% in Inyo County and 6% in Mono County. BLM Bishop emphasizes collaborative, citizen-centered stewardship as well as interagency coordination and cooperation in fulfilling our mission.
