“Outside on the Eastside” calendar of events on the eastern side of the Sierra released by the Mono Lake Committee

Eastern Sierra —-

Getting Outside on the Eastside Just Got Easier

With so many wonderful outside opportunities in the Eastern Sierra, the local non-profit community has created a one-stop online site for locals and visitors alike. Making its debut this month is Outside on the Eastside at www.outsideontheeastside.org, a comprehensive online calendar of natural history events for the Eastern Sierra and Great Basin region.

Three weeks after getting started on the web, the calendar boasts 32 announcements of upcoming events, ranging from birding trips to a film festival. Outside on the Eastside so far includes notices for trail restoration, canoe tours, natural history lectures and seminars, Sierra Club outings, volunteer opportunities, and a fun run on Earth Day! Each posting has a link to the specific organization’s website for more detailed information on the event.

Local groups and organizations including the Eastern Sierra Audubon, White Mountain Research Station, Sierra Nevada Aquatic Research Laboratory, Friends of the Inyo, Owens Valley Committee, Eastern Sierra Land Trust, Mono Lake Committee, and the Bristlecone Chapter of the California Native Plant Society all have events posted at Outside on the Eastside.

The online calendar is intended to be used to keep local nature enthusiasts informed and to be a useful tool for local hospitality businesses, hotels, campgrounds, outdoor stores, and visitor centers to able to print out a calendar when visitors ask “What’s going on around here this week?”

Community groups, non-profits, and agencies are welcome to announce events at the online calendar. If you would like to help make this calendar a success, Outside on the Eastside is looking for community sponsorships to help pay for site maintenance of this great online resource. Email Jamie Anderson at jamie@friendsoftheinyo.org for more details or to get your event posted.
