CALREC Vision: Cross-Jurisdictional Collaboration to Advance Sustainable Outdoor Recreation in California
A New Path to Healthier Forests
| Partnering with the Inyo National Forest and Quantified Ventures, Mammoth Lakes Trails and Public Access was awarded a $150,000 grant to address recreation needs on the Inyo National Forest. As part of a U.S. Forest Service blog series exploring the role of innovation finance in forest management, the post on MLTPA's award begins with this:|
| "One major function of the Forest Service is to offer recreation opportunities on lands the public can access. National forests and grasslands receive approximately 150 million visits annually, a number which is expected to grow in the coming years.|
With the increase of visitors there is an increased need to modernize campgrounds and address deferred maintenance backlogs, which have also continued to grow."
| Back by popular demand - and cancellation due to a power outage - the Mammoth Trails Community Meeting is rescheduled for this Thursday, 1/21 at 5:00pm. Please join us for an evening of conversation all about trails and what it really takes to go from an idea to implementation. TOML Trails Manager, Joel Rathje will catch us up on what the Mammoth Lakes Trail System (MLTS) has been up to and what projects are in the queue.|
| On January 5, the Mammoth Lakes Recreation Board of Directors endorsed bringing forward to the Inyo National Forest the next three priority projects recommended by the Mammoth Trails Committee. Participate in the meeting through Zoom Webinar, live on MLR's Facebook page, or watch the recording at your convenience!|
