Alabama Hills Volunteer Work Day Planned


The Alabama Hills Stewardship Group, Friends of the Inyo and the Bureau of Land Management’s (BLM) Bishop Field Office will sponsor a volunteer work day in the Alabama Hills on Saturday, March 23, from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

“Work will focus on maintaining and extending previous restoration work in the Alabama Hills,” said Dave Kirk, Alabama Hills steward in the Bishop Field Office.  Volunteers will restore impacted areas by vertical mulching and defining an existing trail.

Participants should meet at the corner of Whitney Portal and Movie roads at 9:30 a.m.  Please come prepared for outdoor work with gloves, hat and sunscreen.  The BLM and Friends of the Inyo will provide tools, trash bags and drinks.
