Bishop, CA – May 22, 2024

Eastern Sierra Land Trust (ESLT) invites the community to join a rewarding day of stewardship at Black Lake Preserve on Tuesday, May 28th. Volunteers will gather at 8:00 AM at the ESLT office (250 N. Fowler Street in Bishop) to carpool to this unique desert wetland in Adobe Valley.

Black Lake Preserve is a rare gem in the Eastern Sierra, a sparkling oasis teeming with wildlife and migratory birds. Its emerald waters and surrounding habitat offer a crucial refuge in the arid landscape. The Black Lake Stewardship Day provides an opportunity for nature enthusiasts and community members to contribute to the ongoing care of this special place.

“Black Lake Preserve is a haven for both wildlife and people,” said Emmie Snead, ESLT Stewardship Director. “Stewardship Day is a chance to give back to the land that gives us so much. It’s also a wonderful way to connect with nature and like-minded people.”

Volunteers will participate in activities such as:

  • Habitat restoration: Contributing to projects that support the native plants and animals of Black Lake
  • Debris removal: Removing old fencing debris, barbed wire, and other items that could be harmful for wildlife
  • Infrastructure repair: Repairing sections of damage fence, cleaning interpretive sign

No experience is necessary, and all tools and guidance will be provided. Volunteers are encouraged to dress for outdoor work, wear sturdy shoes, long pants and shirt, and bring sunscreen, bug spray, a hat, and plenty of water.

This event is an excellent opportunity for families, groups, and individuals to make a tangible difference in the Eastern Sierra. By volunteering, participants will not only contribute to the preservation of Black Lake Preserve but also learn more about its unique ecosystem and the importance of conservation.

To register, please RSVP by May 27th by contacting ESLT Staff Member, Emmie Snead at [email protected]. Space is limited to 20-25 participants.
