Project Description:

Conservation Lands across the California Desert like Conglomerate Mesa and Panamint Valley are currently experiencing a 20 year “super bloom”. Friends of the Inyo seeks funds to hire a professional photographer to photograph the super bloom, including close up and landscape level photos. We will then use these images for the Conglomerate Mesa and Panamint Valley National Conservation Lands campaigns and share them with our conservation partners also working on defending the Desert Renewable Energy Conservation Plan and protecting these places from industrial-scale mining.
