Friends of the Inyo



About Us

We ensure the public lands of the Eastern Sierra exist in an intact, healthy natural state for people and wildlife through preservation, stewardship, exploration, and education.

We strive to keep the public lands of the Eastern Sierra , open to all, and unencumbered by inappropriate development. Our core values compel us to advocate constructively based on science and data, and with ethical conduct.

We collaborate with communities and diverse peoples of the Eastern Sierra. We are inclusive and respectful with our partners, land management agencies, members and each other.

Friends of the Inyo was originally organized over 30 years ago to comment on the Inyo National Forest (INF) forest planning process. Since then, FOI has evolved into its current form working on a broad range of public land issues that impact Inyo and Mono Counties.
