Scavenger Hunts and Saddle Sores

The cowboys who have ridden these rugged lands since before they could walk would have laughed to see me (and to be honest, you probably would have, too). There I was, trotting along aboard a frisky mare, ironically named “Grandma,” carrying all my necessary equipment: backpack, cameras, measuring tape, GPS unit, iPad case, and more – all dangling and swinging as my mount made her way up the trail. Now I’m no ...continue reading

A Place to Play and Grow

Lately, upon arriving at the ESLT office each morning, I have been stopped in my tracks time and time again by the sight of our front yard. I just can't help but pause for a few moments to admire the work that has been accomplished, and check in on the clumps of baby plants perched on their sturdy mounds of dirt. Just six months ago, our front yard at 250 N. Fowler St. was a lush, grass-covered drought-contributor; today, ...continue reading

As Busy as a Bee: ESLT’s Pollinator Education...

As the Eastern Sierra warms each spring, ESLT staff and volunteers get to work inspiring local school kids with our annual Sunflower Garden Project. This project gives elementary students the opportunity to get outside of the classroom and learn about life in their backyards. Third graders this year have learned about the life of plants: including the process of photosynthesis, the important role pollinators play, and the magic of germination. They’ve planted ...continue reading

Returning Home

Arriving for the first time at Sherwin Summit and seeing Bishop’s tiny lights below in a sea of darkness, I remember thinking “What the heck have I gotten myself into now…” Bishop is a small, one-street two-bar kind of town where mules trot by your house, buildings use wood-burning stoves for heat and everyone goes to sleep at 10pm. Yes, this is the metropolis of the Eastside and I’ll be darned if ...continue reading

Highlights from the ESLT Wildlife Camera

Thanks to a generous grant from the Norcross Wildlife Foundation, ESLT purchased a motion activated wildlife camera and other photographic equipment this last spring. The motion triggered weather proof camera captures photographs day or night without disturbing wildlife. Throughout this past monitoring season, ESLT staff have enjoyed placing the camera on ESLT project lands with landowner permission, and downloading the photos in the office. It is a bit like opening a package ...continue reading
