"We believe it is particularly important to preserve open space
in the Eastern Sierra for future generations. People come from
all over to renew themselves by hiking, fishing, or riding here."
- Stan and Jan Hunewill, ranchers

An ESLT Brown Bag Lunch Presentation
Tuesday, September 13
12:00 - 1:00pm
ESLT Office (250 N. Fowler St. in Bishop)
Eastern Sierra packers Jennifer and Lee Roeser of McGee Creek Pack Station have plenty of tales to tell from their time spent admiring the Sierra views from between long ears - mule ears, that is! On September 13th, they will join Eastern Sierra Land Trust in our office bakcyard for our free monthly Brown Bag Lunch Series. They look forward to sharing stories of life in the saddle, and how pack trains came to be a quintessential Eastside tradition.
ESLT's free Brown Bag Lunches are typically held on the first Tuesday of the month from May - September. Guests are encouraged to bring lunch and sunglasses. In inclement weather, the event will be held indoors. To learn more about our 2016 Brown Bag Lunch Series, Click Here >>
