The Owens Valley Committee invites you to its annual social event, lecture, and fundraiser on Sunday, April 26, 2015. The gathering will take place from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. at the Mountain Light Gallery, 106 Main Street in Bishop.
Special guest Bruce Embrey of the Manzanar Committee will be speaking on this year’s theme, “Partnering to Protect Owens Valley.” The event will include live music, hors d’oeuvres and beverages. There will also be a silent auction featuring artwork and crafts by local artists and artisans and much more. A suggested donation of $10 at the door is appreciated.
The Owens Valley Committee is a non-profit organization dedicated to seeking just and sustainable management of Owens Valley land and water resources. OVC envisions a valley in which existing open space is protected, historic uses sustained, and depleted ground water reserves and surface water flows are restored as Los Angeles phases out its dependence on Owens Valley water.
Please join the OVC for an evening of conversation, music, and partnership, set amidst Galen and Barbara Rowell’s stunning photographs of the Owens Valley and beyond.
