Project Description: Thanks to a generous grant from the National Forest Foundation (NFF), Friends of the Inyo (FOI) and MLTPA have teamed up with the Inyo National Forest (U.S. Forest Service, or USFS) and Mammoth Trails to bring a series of trail stewardship days to the Mammoth Lakes community. The grant is awarded through the NFF’s Ski Conservation Fund, which is funded through optional $1.00 contributions made when purchasing a Mammoth Mountain Ski Area (MMSA) season pass or staying at lodging properties owned by MMSA. Contributions are matched by NFF federal funds and are available to non-profits to conduct on-the-ground stewardship work on their local forests.
The Mammoth Lakes Summer of Stewardship 2009 is a six-event program that runs from June through September and involves local recreation user groups and clubs in caring for some of the area’s best-loved amenities. See below for the event schedule and recaps of the work we’ve completed thus far. For details, please contact MLTPA Development and Community Relations Director Kim Stravers at email@example.com or FOI Communications Manager Stacy Corless at firstname.lastname@example.org.
