Alabama Hills Stewardship Public Meeting Announced


The community of Lone Pine and the Bureau of Land Management’s Bishop Field Office will hold a public meeting on Thursday, January 21, in Lone Pine regarding management of the Alabama Hills. The meeting will begin at 6 p.m. and take place at the Beverly and Jim Rogers Museum of Lone Pine Film History.

The purpose of the meeting will be to discuss stewardship actions completed to date and to discuss future actions proposed for the management of the hills said Chris Langley, Inyo County film commissioner and chair of the Alabama Hills Stewardship Group.

At this meeting, Kevin Mazzu, chair of the stewardship subcommittee exploring the future for the Alabama Hills, will update us on the progress made to date and outline for everyone the proposed process going forward. The subcommittee was formed over a year ago and has made good progress meeting with users and stakeholders of the Alabama Hills to learn of their desires and needs for the area.

In November 2006, the BLM Central California Resource Advisory Council met in Lone Pine and expressed its support for the BLM to build upon the grass roots effort of local leaders to frame a community strategy to maintain the character of the Alabama Hills.  

For more information, please contact Chris Langley at (760) 937-1189 or Jim Jennings of the BLM at (760) 872- 5027.
