BLM Bishop Field Office Asks Public for Help in Stopping Graffiti

The Bureau of Land Management's Bishop Field Office is asking residents of the Eastern Sierras for help in keeping public lands tag free.

Each year, BLM staff spends significant amounts of time removing graffiti from scenic areas, including the Alabama Hills.

Twelve locations along Tuttle Creek Road in the Alabama Hills were recently tagged with graffiti.

"It took five hours with a high-speed sprayer to remove the graffiti," said Scott Justham, BLM park ranger. "The tags detracted from the beauty of the spring wildflower display. In addition, there's a potential economic impact to the Lone Pine community if film companies decide not to use the area due to graffiti. Tuttle Creek Road is often used as a movie location including the movie 'Tremors' starring Kevin Bacon."

People finding graffiti in the Alabama Hills or other public lands can contact the Bishop Office at (760) 872-5000.
