ESLT: Upcoming Events & Proposition 68


Lands & Legacy Celebration ALMOST Sold Out!
Finding Hope and Resiliency in Nature


We have nearly sold out of tickets for our 10th Annual Lands & Legacy weekend, June 8-10. Celebrate the hope and resiliency that can be found in nature. Everyone is invited to purchase tickets to this annual benefit and join friends, family and fellow conservation supporters as we raise a glass in honor of our conservation successes in the Eastern Sierra. If you're not able to join us and would still like to support the Paddle Raise, you can donate here.

Special Events at Lands & Legacy Celebration
Lands & Legacy Benefit Dinner and Paddle Raise
When: Saturday, June 9 from 5pm-8pm
Parallax Restaurant, Mammoth Lakes (map)

The Paddle Raise will give you a chance to protect what you cherish most. If conservation is going to stand the test of time, we have to get out ahead and conserve the special places that make the Eastern Sierra what it is. That’s often only possible because of the compassion and generosity of people like you. Click Here for Details

Proposition 68: Safe and Reliable Water for Families, Farms, and Businesses
Vote Yes on 68!

Proposition 68, the Clean Water and Safe Parks Act, is a $4.1 billion bond that will invest $142 million in conservation and natural resource protection in our Sierra/Cascade region alone. The Sierra Nevada region has suffered from a lack of long-term, stable funding to manage our critical natural resources and ensure the health and sustainability of our communities. Now more than ever, we need to come together to protect our environment and preserve our natural resources for the future.
