The Alabama Hills will be alive with all sorts of sounds this Saturday, April 12 from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. as the community turns out for the third annual Alabama Hills Day.
Co-sponsored by the Alabama Hills Stewardship Group, Inc. and the Bureau of Land Management â€“ Bishop Field Office in partnership with the Lone Pine Film History Museum, the event celebrates the scenic landscape and educates the public about the variety of groups and activities that access and interact with the Alabamas.
Because of the number and scope of events and tours available on AHD, the organizers have provided contact information on tour/event leaders. Interested or potential participants can make these contacts directly for more information or to reserve a space on the tour.
All tours meet and leave from the Lone Pine Convention Center at 325 S. Main St. with the exception of the helicoptor tours which leave from and return to the Lone Pine Airport.
