If you are already a Toiyabe patient and need a simple medication refill or other routine service, call the Bishop office (760-873-8461) and notify them you are a patient of Rachel (or just note Coleville location), and someone will take the message and contact Rachel to complete the task.

The Eastern Sierra Wildfire Alliance (ESWA) is a collaborative of various stakeholders from Alpine, Mono, and Inyo Counties. To reduce risks of future catastrophic wildfire, build local capacity, and boost community resiliency, ESWA coordinates efforts to holistically tackle the challenges posed by wildfires.

The website is made available through funding by the California Climate Investments (CCI) and the Sierra Nevada Conservancy. CCI is a statewide initiative that puts billions of Cap-and-Trade dollars to work reducing greenhouse gas emissions, strengthening the economy, and improving public health and the environment — particularly in disadvantaged communities. 

The Cap-and-Trade program creates a financial incentive for industries to invest in clean technologies and develop innovative ways to reduce pollution.

To date, $9.3 billion in cap-and-trade proceeds has been appropriated to 20 state agencies that have distributed $3.4 billion to projects that are either completed or underway across the state.

More than half of the $3.4 billion in implemented investments (nearly $2 billion), is benefiting the state’s most vulnerable populations.
