Bodie Hills Conservation Partnership opens new office in Bridgeport, CA
Open House ceremony on May 2, 2015; public and press invited
BRIDGEPORT, Calif. – The Bodie Hills Conservation Partnership (BHCP), a not-for-profit organization dedicated to protecting habitat, scenic, and historic values in the Bodie Hills and promoting sustainable economic growth in the region, has moved its headquarters to the Town of Bridgeport in northern Mono County, California.
The Partnership will host an Open House to celebrate its new offices on Saturday, May 2, from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm. Public officials, media, and area residents are invited to attend to learn more about the mission of the BHCP and how designating the Bodie Hills as a national monument will permanently protect wildlife, traditional recreational uses, and ranching in the area as well as air and water quality and the scenic backdrop for the Bridgeport Valley.
WHO: Bodie Hills Conservation Partnership – Jeff Hunter, Director
WHAT: Open House to celebrate new headquarters
WHEN: SATURDAY MAY 2, 2015 – 11:00 am – 3:00 pm
WHERE: 158 Kingsley Street, Suite #1, Bridgeport, CA (corner S. Sinclair)
WHY: The BHCP is committed to protecting the extraordinary natural, scenic, and historic qualities of the Bodies and promoting the year-round recreational opportunities of these public lands. Because the BHCP emphasizes collaborative strategies and partnerships to achieve its mission, it makes sense for the Partnership to operate from Bridgeport, gateway to the Bodie Hills, the county seat, and the heart of northern Mono County (motto: Wild by Nature).
The Bodie Hills Conservation Partnership was formed in 2011 to protect and publicize the unique recreational, scenic, and habitat values of the Bodie Hills. Our vision for the Bodie Hills embraces Triple Bottom Line principles and the three P’s: People, Profit & Planet. The Partnership works to ensure that sustainable traditional uses of the Bodies such as grazing, hunting, off-highway vehicle use, mountain biking, snowmobiling and other snow sports, and wildlife watching are conserved; to better manage the land for at-risk species such as the bi-state sage grouse; to grow tourism and recreational visitation to this remarkable area; and to help deliver sustainable economic growth for local communities.]
