White Mountain Visitor Center Temporarily Closing for Re-Design
The White Mountain Visitor Center, located in Bishop, California, is temporarily closing for a re-design. The visitor center will close after business hours on April 3, 2015.
The redesign is expected to take three weeks to complete. The visitor center should re-open by April 27th, 2015. In the interim, visitor center staff will be partnering with the Bishop Chamber of Commerce Visitor Center to continue to provide information services, issue permits, etc.
The re-design is much needed. A new visitor services desk, shelving, flooring and paint are part of the effort to more efficiently use space in this small, but busy, visitor center to provide better services to our visitors. Many of the furnishings and flooring date back to the late 1970s.
The Inyo National Forest would like to thank the Eastern Sierra Interpretive Association (ESIA) for donating part of the funds for the re-design and the Bishop Chamber of Commerce for sharing their space to ensure visitors to the Eastern Sierra continue to receive the range of information and services while the work is completed.
