Bishop Chamber: Spring has Sprung

Spring has sprung in the Eastern Sierra and that means our region is blooming with many fun things to see and do!  From wildflower & wildlife photography to shopping for unique treasures, Bishop is the place to be now!  Mother Nature was generous with snow in March, so ski lifts are still running at Mammoth Mountain.  If you like trout fishing, head to the nearby lakes and streams in Bishop Creek Canyon - many anglers have been enjoying early season success at South Lake and Lake Sabrina.

And lest we forget....May brings the annual Mule Days Celebration at the Tri-County Fairgrounds in Bishop.  We hope you'll consider joining in the week of mule competitions, live music concerts, dances, barbecue dinners and all things celebrating the American Mule's contributions to pioneering the Western United States.

Don't forget to share all your adventures with us on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter with #visitbishop - we can't wait to see what you discover! Remember to tag your photos #visitbishop to be featured on our instagram and facebook pages!

We sure hope to see you soon - Your friends at the Bishop Chamber of Commerce &  Visitor Center

ESBCA: Chasing Spring on the PCT


"Chasing Spring on the Pacific Crest Trail" presented by Bob Steele. In 2016, Bob Steele and his wife Susan thru-hiked the 2,650 mile-long Pacific Crest Trail with a different goal than anyone else—counting all the birds. This presentation will take you along the mountainous spine of the West Coast, winding from Mexico to Canada with a keen eye toward natural history and birds. Share in the joy and challenge of backpacking 140 days on one of the most famous trails in the Western Hemisphere, and glimpse some of the 200 species of birds found along the way.

Chasing Spring on the Pacific Crest Trail
When: Wednesday, May 23 (6:30 pm to 8 pm. Doors open at 6:00 pm)
Where: Inyo Council for the Arts (137 South Main Street, Bishop)
