L&L Anniversary Banner

2022 marks the 21st Anniversary of Eastern Sierra Land Trust, and you’re invited to help us celebrate the permanent protection of over 21,000 acres of natural and working lands!

This has been an exciting year for our conservation community, marked by the permanent protection of Centennial Point Ranch, our involvement with California’s 30×30 Initiative, ongoing efforts to advance the  Mammoth Lakes 395 Wildlife Crossing, and so much more.

For our 21st Anniversary Lands & Legacy Celebration, ESLT is hosting an event-filled week, finishing with our energizing paddle raise on August 25th. We hope that you are able to join us for some or all of these opportunities for our community to gather!

To register for the Paddle Raise and/or Wine Tasting, please use the form at the bottom of this page. For any questions about the events or how to RSVP,  email
