Eastern Sierra Land Trust's Lands & Legacy
July 20 - 22, 2012
ESLT will be hosting a weekend to celebrate and enjoy the beautiful wide open spaces of our region. The Eastern Sierra embodies stunning scenery, world-class recreation opportunities, and a passionate community of people working together. The preservation of these unique and vital lands helps ensure future opportunities for visitors to the region.
During the weekend of July 20-22, ESLT will feature events designed to showcase the dramatic Eastern Sierra landscape and connect ESLT supporters and members to this treasured land. NBA great, bicycle enthusiast, and ESLT member and supporter Bill Walton, will participate in the weekend’s events. “This terrific event brings together all that is right in the world and life: the magnificent Eastern Sierra, health, sport, the team, riding our bikes with purpose and passion, and the chance to make a difference in all of our futures,” says Bill. “Preserving land forever does really matter on many, many levels. Won't you come with us and enjoy the ride?”
Join Bill and other ESLT riders as they pedal along one of the most incredible and scenic roadways in America - the 23 mile June Lake Loop. The ride will include a gourmet “feed” station, a chair-lift ride to a BBQ lunch at June Mountain Ski Area, a limited edition ESLT Fun Ride t-shirt, and many photo opportunities with Bill. 7:45am Check-in begins at June Mountain Ski Area Parking Lot. 9am ride starts. 12pm - 1:30pm Lunch at the June Mountain mid chalet.
The weekend will culminate with a fun flower-power gala dinner sponsored by Mammoth Mountain Ski Area at the Mountainside Conference Center at Main Lodge on Saturday, July 21. The evening’s celebration will include a reception, dinner, silent auction, and entertaining program with Bill Walton and live music from Flashback. Reception with appetizers and hosted bar at 6pm and Dinner at 7pm.
