The Alabama Hills Stewardship Group, Inc.
The Alabama Hills Stewardship Group, Inc. (AHSG), a 501c3 nonprofit public benefit corporation, is a local group of Owens Valley community leaders who have partnered with the Bureau of Land Management over the last 7 years to help direct the management of this special recreation area. The goal is to make the Alabama Hills as accessible and activity inclusive as possible, while still preserving the semi-primitive and scenic landscape. The AHSG is committed to protecting the jaw-dropping beauty of this area with continued access for hikers, motorists, photographers and rock climbers, while allowing important economic activities like commercial filming, cattle grazing, hunting/fishing and recreation to continue. Balancing all these needs is what makes the Alabama Hills so special to so many people and necessitates its protection. The AHSG, with support from dozens of local stakeholder groups, are pursuing federal legislation to elevate the status of the Alabama Hills to a National Scenic Area.
