South Tufa

This is the classic school field trip site, and is appropriate for all student levels.

A naturalist-led program at South Tufa introduces students to the Mono Lake ecosystem and water issues. Most programs last a little over an hour. Walking distance is one mile and the trail loops through a large tufa grove at the lakeshore and returns through native shrubs and grasses. Your natrualist guide can easily adapt this program for all student age levels.
