“When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the universe.”
Everyone benefits when there is water in Mono Lake—from Los Angeles residents who rely on Mono Basin streams for some of their water, to visitors to the Mono Basin who seek a peaceful wilderness experience, to the millions of birds, brine shrimp, and other life who call this place home.
The Mono Lake Committee is here to make sure it stays that way. If you would like to join the 16,000 members across the world who have already given their support to Mono Lake, you can join today online or at our Information Center & Bookstore in Lee Vining. Otherwise, if you’d like to stay up to date with what is happening here, we would love to send you news from Mono Lake. Thank you for taking this self-guided tour of South Tufa—we hope you enjoyed it.
