The Eastern Sierra Recreation Collaborative (ESRC) is a grass roots effort launched in 2014 by recreation enthusiasts in California's Eastern Sierra committed to supporting the sustainable management of outdoor recreation resources. ESRC initiatives are pursued by focused collaboration with national, regional, and local stakeholders and through the Gateway Communities of the Eastern Sierra.
2016: Thanks to a generous grant from the National Forest Foundation, ESRC convened and facilitated five public meetings in Gateway Communities of the Eastern Sierra during the summer months of 2016. The effort was focused on identifying and further developing desired conditions in support of sustainable recreation as part of the revision process of the Inyo National Forest's Land Management Plan.

2014/2015: In preparation for the Inyo National Forest Management Plan Revision Process, ESRC invited recreation enthusiasts and regional stakeholders to participate in a series of public meetings from October 2014 through January of 2015. Participants in this professionally facilitated and convened effort established a regional voice representing the area's recreation economy to inform local, state and federal planning and policy efforts. This included identifying desired values, principles and guidlelines for inclusion in the Inyo National Forest Management Plan Revision.
