Convict Lake Restoration Planting

In November 2017, The Eastern Sierra Interpretive Association in partnership with Friends of the Inyo and the United States Forest Service helped restore habitat that has been damaged due to unauthorized OHV use. Antelope Bitterbrush plants grown from locally collected seed from the California Native Plant Society Cooperative Plant Nursery in Bishop, were selected to be planted to because they are a very hardy plant and is native to the area. We were able to plant about 150 individual plants on about 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.
