National Public Lands Day Events Near Bishop Need a Few Good Volunteers
The Bureau of Land Management Bishop Field Office is asking eastern Sierra residents to take a few hours on Sept. 29, National Public Lands Day, and give back to the public lands surrounding our communities.
“We have several conservation projects, from the Alabama Hills in Lone Pine to the Bodie Hills near Bridgeport, on the public lands that contribute to the quality of life we all cherish,” said Bill Dunkelberger, BLM Bishop Field Office manager. Conservation organizations including the California Deer Association, Quail Unlimited and the Public Lands Foundation have provided money for project supplies, drinks and t-shirts for the volunteers.
Detailed descriptions of projects are posted on the web at http://www.blm.gov/ca/st/en/res/volunteers.html.
Projects scheduled on Sept. 29 include:
“This year is especially noteworthy because the Bishop BLM office can expand conservation efforts as more volunteers step forward to take personal responsibility to maintain the scenic landscape that is our backyard,” Dunkelberger said.
National Public Lands Day is the largest annual coast-to-coast, single-day volunteer restoration effort for America's public lands. The purpose of this event is to improve the recreational facilities, preserve the biological and heritage resources, and foster public involvement in the stewardship of public lands.
