The Andrea Lawrence Award Dinner
The Mono Lake Committee helps to carry on Andrea Lawrence's inspirational environmental legacy through the presentation of her annual award.
The 2017 Andrea Lawrence Award Dinner was a very special evening honoring author and activitst Genny Smith. Under a spectacular sunset with a classic Sierra wave cloud we remembered Andrea and celebrated Genny's many contributions to this region of the Sierra Nevada. You can see photos and read a summary of the evening here on the Mono-logue soon.
We would love to have you join us at the next Andrea Lawrence Award Dinner in the spring of 2018. Check back here for updates, or email Lily Pastel for more information.
