Lone Pine Visitor Center opens with quilt collection

The Eastern Sierra Interagency Visitor Center in Lone Pine is officially open for business.  Located just south of the community of Lone Pine on U.S. 395, the center provides information for exploring the public lands in the Eastern Sierra. It's a great place to stop and get your vacation headed in the right direction.  If you hurry, you will be also be able to see a fabulous collection of quilts done by the local ladies from the Lone Pine area.  Well worth a stop to break your drive!

Quilts now hanging at the Lone Pine Visitor Center

The Eastern Sierra Interagency Visitor Center was made possible by a partnership including the BLM.  At a grand opening celebration held earlier this summer, the new Visitor Center was dedicated to the memories of BLM Bishop Field Manager Steve Addington and Martha Miklaucic, Executive Director of the Eastern Sierra Interpretative Association, who were both instrumental in bringing the community together to design and build the facility.
