Chidago Canyon Clean up Day
The mouth of Chidago Canyon North of Bishop, served as a rock quarry for years. The long gone quarry equipment had been replaced with a curious collection of trash, furniture, pallets, appliances, tires and shotgun shells and the time had come to restore this eyesore. (text continues below)
Through the collaborative efforts of the BLM Bishop Field Office, Advocates for Access to Public Lands (AAPL), the Eastern Sierra Four Wheel Drive Club, The Sneakers Motorcycle Club, Eastern Sierra Quail Unlimited and many individuals the quarry is clean once again. Special thanks go out to Rich Williams (BLM) and Kyle Goin (AAPL) for ramrodding this event.
