Hola from ESLT’s 2012 AmeriCorps Member!

Hello future friends and community!  My name is Victoria Ortiz and I will be serving as ESLT’s 2012 AmeriCorps member and Education Coordinator.  This morning I went for a run during which I reveled in how lucky I am to be living in paradise.  For the last couple winters I have worked as a ski instructor at Mammoth Mountain and have fallen in love with the clean air and active [...]

Though I most undoubtedly would rather spend my spare time strolling through the hills than squinting into the blue light of the computer, the truth is that I also really enjoy working with the new tools that technology provides.  Some tools are more complex while others are quite user friendly.  In my professional [...]

Welcome to ESLT LandLines

Happy Birthday to the Eastern Sierra Land Trust community!  This is a slightly belated birthday wish, as the ESLT was officially incorporated on January 29, 2001.  It has been quite an eight-year journey that has taken us to some of the most beautiful places in the incredible Eastern Sierra, introduced us to amazing landowners, and given us the thrill of being integral to the permanent preservation of over 6000 acres in our [...]
