|A well-attended reception marked the opening of the OVC Foundation (OVCF) Visitor Center in Lone Pine Saturday, February 19th. A generous donation by an OVC member in honor of Betty Brown and OVC founding member Betty Gilchrist made the opening possible.
OVCF is involved in education, science, service and legal fundraising dealing with land and water management in the Owens Valley, particularly lands owned by the City of Los Angeles and managed by the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power. The Center, which houses a document and text library as well as interpretive displays, is open to the public. The center will be open most Mondays through Fridays in from 10:00AM to 2:00PM. Call 760.876.1845 for further details or come in and see us at 134 E. Bush St. in Lone Pine (across the street from the Post Office).
