Looking to revamp your garden this season, but don’t know where to start? At our free Pollinator Garden Workshop, you’ll hear from local experts about hummingbirds, bees, butterflies, and how you can create a blooming haven for pollinators right in your backyard.

If you’re like most people, you probably can’t imagine a world without fruits, vegetables, wildflowers, and other flowering plants. However, you may be surprised to hear that these are now at risk – and that’s because butterflies, bees, and other pollinators are threatened by habitat loss.

Good news, though: there’s a way you can help! Sign up for ESLT’s free Eastside Pollinator Garden Project at the Pollinator Garden Workshop on April 14, and we’ll help you turn your yard into a beautiful haven for all the birds and insects that keep the Eastern Sierra blooming and productive.

For additional information, please contact Ryan at ryan@eslt.org or (760) 873-4554.

Bring you family and friends and join the Eastern Sierra Land Trust and John Muir Laws for a field trip exploring the beauty and diversity of plant and animal life in the San Francisco Bay Area.

As we wander through Coyote Hills, he will reflect on his experiences and work in the Bay Area and the Eastern Sierra, highlighting the urgency of conserving these very special places.

Over lunch, staff will provide highlights about ESLT's recent conservation success working with landowners to preserve vital lands in the Eastern Sierra.

This is a family friendly event. Please bring your own lunch and a water bottle, and leave dogs at home. Note: there is a $5 parking fee at Coyote Hills. For more information and to RSVP, please email info@eslt.org.
