The public lands in Mono and Inyo counties span the length of the eastern Sierra from Topaz Lake to Owens Lake in a region dominated by public agency lands.
The Inyo and Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forests, the major federal land administrators in the area, manage over 2 million acres, while the Los Angeles Dept. of Water and Power (DWP) manages 310,000 acres.
Private land ownership comprises only about 2% in Inyo County and 6% in Mono County.
