Yesterday Mono Lake Committee staff joined forces with three volunteers to help maintain the beauty of the Mono Basin on our Adopt-A-Highway cleanup.

We met early and headed to our mile-long adopted section of Highway 395. It was a beautiful blustery day. Lucky for us, the wind meant that the pesky no-see-ums wouldn’t bother us. It was great to walk along the highway and see the many plants beginning to bloom; bitterbrush, lupine, and monkeyflowers were a welcome sight after what felt like an endless winter.

After hours of fighting with unruly, windswept bags the highway was all cleaned up. In total we collected about eight bags of trash and lots of recyclables.

Thank you to the volunteers for making this project possible! If you are interested in becoming a Mono Lake volunteer or joining us for our next highway clean-up day contact Jessica at (760) 647-6595.
