Bringing bighorns back from the brink
By Jon Klusmire/Special to The Inyo Register Sierra Bighorn Board JK.jpg Sierra bighorn sheep spend much of their lives nimbly navigating around cliffs and along rocky ledges far above timberline, displaying an uncanny ability to scramble around what appears to be imminent danger. And for almost 20 years, the bighorns’ balancing act has been shadowed by the Sierra Nevada Bighorn Sheep Foundation. The non-profit group originally worked to pull the bighorns back from the brink of extinction, and is currently working to expand its reach so it can keep up with a string of successes that has seen a steady increase in the number of Sierra bighorn, and successful efforts to transplant and reintroduce the iconic animal to two more of its historic ranges in the Sierra. In 2012, the foundation and the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, which manages the Sierra Nevada Bighorn Sheep Recovery Program, celebrated a significant milestone when the number of bighorn sheep reached 500, in five separate herds from Lee Vining to Lone Pine. That milestone allowed DFW to begin taking animals from existing herds and transplanting them to new locations, essentially creating a “new” herd. The animals are carefully screened and selected to create a genetically diverse group. When bighorns were released in the Olancha Peak area in 2013, it represented the first attempt to establish a new population in 25 years.

Bighorn move toward recovery; reintroductions expand species back into historical range
By Lyra Pierotti photo-1.jpg The recovery of the endangered Sierra Nevada bighorn sheep took one more step forward last month with the California Department of Fish and Wildlife’s second reintroduction effort since 1986. In late March, they translocated 14 bighorn to a remote part of Sequoia National Park, which has been devoid of bighorn since the early 20th century. “It was such a huge milestone to get these [bighorn] sheep into the Kern,” said biologist Tom Stephenson, program leader for the Sierra Nevada Bighorn Sheep Recovery Program. The Sierra Nevada bighorn sheep were given emergency endangered status in 1999 after their numbers hit an all-time low of 100 in 1995. This new herd near the Big Arroyo region of Sequoia National Park will be an important reservoir of bighorn due to its geographic isolation from the Eastern Sierra populations, he said. The Department has wanted to reintroduce bighorn to Big Arroyo for over three decades, Stephenson said, “but we didn’t want to do anything to harm the source populations.” The overall population just wasn’t big enough to support reintroduction, he said. Source herds must be stable enough to donate 10 ewes, which scientists have determined to be a sufficient number to start a new herd. March 2013 marked the first successful reintroduction of bighorn since 1986 to an area near Olancha. In addition to last month’s reintroduction of 10 ewes and four rams to the Big Arroyo region in Sequoia National Park, the Department also augmented the Olancha herd with four females. The Olancha herd now has 15 ewes, three rams, and an undetermined number of lambs. Though it’s a tough job, the project has been very successful with reintroductions, said Ben Gonzales, wildlife veterinarian for the department. “It’s complicated,” he said, “because of the politics of endangered species work in a fairly agricultural area.”   How to relocate a bighorn sheep In mid March, Stephenson and his team began capturing bighorn from the Wheeler Ridge herd near Bishop. From a helicopter, the team netted the bighorn, then hobbled and blindfolded them, and carried them one-by-one to a processing site. Once hobbled and blindfolded, they’re remarkably calm, said Stephenson. Gonzales and his team provided the equipment and expertise at the processing site. At the site, they fit collars to the animals so they can track them, and take samples to test for disease, look at nutrition, and determine pregnancy status. Then they loaded the bighorn into one of several big aluminum boxes to be carried south by a pickup truck. Another helicopter picked up the aluminum boxes and carried them to the remote release site, where Stephenson and biologist Alex Few were waiting. When they opened the boxes, Stephenson said, some of the bighorn burst out at a full sprint. But others didn’t want to leave and just hung out in the box, he said—so they had to go in and pull them out.   Recovery outlook The hard work is far from over with this latest reintroduction. To monitor the new Big Arroyo population, scientists will have to hike 25 miles just to find the bighorn. Scientists still have to monitor populations from the ground, because as populations grow, they won’t have collars on every bighorn. Additionally, if data from the collars indicates a bighorn has died, they have to hike in to find out what happened, regardless of season. In the winter, Stephenson said, avalanches can wipe out a lot of bighorn. In the most recent example, six bighorn in the Wheeler herd were wiped out in an avalanche in Scheelite Canyon near Bishop, popular among backcountry skiers and known (in the warmer months) among rock climbers for Pratt’s Crack. Two more sites await reintroductions, one near Taboose Creek and the other near Laurel Creek. Stephenson said he hopes the Taboose site will be recolonized naturally. Laurel Creek is their next priority, and they will continue augmenting herds in order to increase genetic diversity, grow the populations, and replace lost animals. After over a decade spent augmenting herds, Stephenson said, “we’re finally able to reintroduce new herds to completely meet the recovery goals.” And that recovery, he said, could happen in as little as a decade.

Report confirms National Parks are big business
By Mike Gervais/Register Staff Ty Lawrence photographing at Eureka sandunes by Justin Lawrence.jpg The economic benefits for communities located near national parks and other recreation and scenic hot spots are significant – as long as access to those areas is preserved. A recent report released by the National Park Service concludes that, nationwide, the country’s parks have contributed more than $14.7 billion to gateway communities in 2012. A separate report suggests that 2013’s numbers will tell a different story due to the 16-day government shutdown in October. In a series of press releases issued Monday, March 3, the National Park Service announced that Death Valley National Park hosted nearly 1 million visitors, Yosemite National Park saw more than 3 million visitors and Devil’s Postpile National Monument hosted 90,000 visitors in 2012. The Death Valley report states that those visitors spent an estimated $78 million, supporting 929 jobs in communities surrounding the park, such as Lone Pine, Olancha, Shoshone and Tecopa.

Local fire districts disagree on TOT increase
By Marilyn Blake Phillip/Correspondent So Inyo FPD IMG_7840-1.jpg A recent effort to put a Transient Occupancy Tax increase ballot measure before voters in June was abandoned due to non-support by several county supervisory boards. The increase was intended to benefit fire protection district services countywide. Inyo County fire chiefs for the Southern Inyo, Lone Pine, Independence, Olancha, Big Pine and Bishop fire districts met on Jan. 23 to decide whether to place one-percent county TOT increase measure on the June 2014 primary supervisory election ballot, Bishop Fire Chief Ray Seguine said. “In a discussion with the county, some boards wouldn’t support it,” he said, naming Bishop, Lone Pine and Independence. Seguine said those departments felt that a 1 percent increase wouldn’t provide enough revenue to support Emergency Medical Support services in the districts that need it. “Forty-thousand dollars isn’t even going to make a dent on the EMS side.” While Symons Ambulance Service provides EMS service in the Bishop area, the other districts are not so fortunate, the fire chief added.

Fire on west side of Sierra crest funnels smoke to Eastside
By Wendilyn Grasseschi January and wildfires don’t usually go together, even in sunny temperate California, but with a drought winter following the driest year on record, that means things are different. Seven wildfires are burning in the state—some of them thousands of acres—and the Sierra Nevada is no exception. Eastsiders don’t typically expect wildfire smoke during winter, but an almost 700-acre wildfire that has been burning on the west side of the Sierra crest (west of Olancha) since Jan. 15 and the fire has begun to funnel smoke into Mammoth and the Eastern Sierra. The fire, called the Soda Fire, is not being actively fought, but monitored, according to fire officials, meaning it could be some time before it is out. The fire is burning on the Sequoia National Forest, which lies above Porterville, in the foothills and mountains of the Sierra range, according to fire officials. The cause of the fire is under investigation, but there have been no lightning strikes in the region. According to officials at the local air pollution control district based in Bishop, the incoming smoke has added to the already hazy skies that have plagued the region for much of the past six weeks. Officials said the hazy skies are a product of the stubborn high-pressure ridge, which is responsible for holding winter storms at bay and trapping weeks of wood smoke and other pollutants over the Eastern Sierra. Until recently, the smoke from the fire stayed mostly on the west side of the crest, but earlier this week, the wind patterns changed and the smoke has begun to shift north and east, sometimes into the Owens Valley and sometimes, right over Mammoth Pass and into Mammoth. “It has been blocked from reaching us since it started, but the wind pattern is changing a bit, along with the fact that the fire is getting bigger and putting out a bigger column of smoke,” said Great Basin Unified Air Pollution Control District air quality specialist Jon Bucknell. He said there are no changes predicted in the weather patterns for the next few days, meaning the Eastern Sierra may continue to suffer from some incoming smoke from the fire, or until it is extinguished. Air quality, however, has not reached anywhere near the depths it reached during the Aspen and Rim fires, Bucknell said. The wood smoke pollution, while unusually persistent due to the stagnant air brought about by the high pressure ridge blocking incoming storms, has also not reached any levels that the district considers to be unhealthful at this time, he said.

Wish Tree 2013 kicks off this week
By Mike Gervais/Register Staff wish tree kids.jpg Eastern Sierra residents have an opportunity to make local children’s Christmas wishes come true this year through the Inyo-Mono Advocates for Community Action Wish Tree program. The Wish Tree program pairs a local resident with a child from a low-income household to ensure that youth in every community from Benton to Olancha don’t have to go without this Christmas. By picking a bulb off one of the local Wish Trees found in community businesses, residents will find out what a local child wants to see under the Christmas tree on Dec. 25. The bulbs also include the child’s clothing sizes, so his or her sponsor can purchase warm winter clothes for their Wish Tree recipient.
