| The Inyo NF is asking for input on any concerns or issues with the Long Valley Exploration Drilling Project, or any information that may be helpful for determining the scope of the analysis. The project proposes to drill up to 3 core borings on up to 14 drill pads, to evaluate the mineral potential within the Long Valley area, near Lake Crowley. Read the full scoping letter from the Inyo National Forest and comment by May 7, 2021.|
Spring Brings On-the-Ground Fun!
| With longer days and a fast melting snow pack, the Mammoth Lakes Trail System data collectors, trail designers, and planners are gearing up to explore the project area. The team is mobilizing to ground truth concepts, identify positive and negative control points and areas, and make thoughtful recommendations for optimizing the public access trail system between the communities of Mammoth Lakes and June Lake.|
| Whether you are a local leader or trail enthusiast, engaging in this project will help local interests take shape on the landscape, and allow the planning team to understand where and how community members use local trails and where they would like to have improved access to surrounding public lands.|
Do The Right Thing, Please.
| These three pictures are just three of what seems to be an infinite number of pictures capturing the disrespect and dangerous actions of people using our public lands as a home they don't care for or a cheap dump site. The trash is unsightly and dangerous. The illegal campfires are deadly.|
| There are several groups doing clean-ups and educating the public on best practices and recreating responsibly. But, it really is up to all us to create a culture of respect for our public lands. Please, please, please - do the right thing - and pass it on to others!!!|
