Bishop's Earth Day Celebration

The BLM Bishop Field Office participated in Bishop's Sunrise Rotary Club "Earth Day: A Day at the Park," on Saturday, April 21. The all-day event was held in the Bishop City Park and included activities, music, vendors and informational booths. Residents of Eastern Sierra communities and visitors to the area stopped by the BLM's booth to learn more about the Bureau of Land Management, the natural and cultural resources it manages, and the recreation opportunities available on public lands. Kids who visited the booth colored "sage grouse hats" and learned more about local wildlife and wildlife habitat by participating in puppet activities. 

In a booth with a banner reading "Bureau of Land Management," volunteers talk to visitors and help children with crafts.
