The Eastern Sierra Interpretive Association, in partnership with Friends of the Inyo and the U.S. Forest Service, helped restore habitat that has been damaged due to unauthorized OHV use. Antelope Bitterbrush plants grown from locally collected seed by the California Native Plant Society Cooperative Plant Nursery in Bishop, were selected to be planted to because they’re a very hardy plant and native to the area. We were able to plant about 150 individual plants on approximately a 350 ft. stretch of land. Due to a spectacular turn out from our volunteers we were able to plant the entirety of the restoration area.
Project Completed November 2017.
