Celebrating Community Connections

April 19th, Bishop City Park

Last Sunday, the Eastern Sierra Land Trust joined Bishop in celebrating Community Connections at the park. Many great local organizations were there, offering advice on Eastern Sierra living, and providing kid activities. Our booth featured the “Living in the Eastern Sierra Quilt.” Kids could choose to come up and draw with crayons a cloth square of their favorite thing in the Eastern Sierra.

Their creativity and enthusiasm was great. Quilt Square Art ranged from mountains to rivers, from flowers to cows. It was fun to watch what the kids would come up with to draw, and to see their interpretation of the Eastern Sierra.

About forty squares in all were made, and will be assembled into a quilt. We hope to enter the quilt in the Tri-County Fair, so stay tuned!
