Mono Lake Committee staff history

The Mono Lake Committee has about a dozen full-time year-round staff in Lee Vining, as well as part-time staff in Lee Vining, Sacramento, and Los Angeles (see sidebar at right for our current staff). That number almost doubles in the summer time with seasonal staff. See the list (partial) below of past staff, whose accomplishments we continue to build on today.
