We are excited to announce that we are offering free educational interpretive programs and activities on the front patio of the Mono Lake Committee, Tuesday through Saturday at 11:00am. We will explore topics such as how the Mono Basin formed, bird adaptation, Mono Lake’s changing habitats, following animal tracks, and we’ll also make recycled crafts.

Our forming the Mono Basin program will focus on the different types of rock in the Mono Basin. It will introduce visitors to the varied landscape of the Mono Basin and what makes it so unique. Join us for a chance to make your very own tufa!

The recycled crafts program is suitable for all ages to come and put your imagination to work. Each week we will be making a different craft that is inspired by the wildlife of the Mono Basin.

The following animal tracks program will teach you about the different tracks that mammals leave behind in the Mono Basin and a little about where some of these animals live.

The birds and feet program will focus on the adaptations and special qualities of birds that make them so exceptional. Learn about the variety of birds in the Mono Basin and test your knowledge with our trivia activity.

Lastly, but not least, our Mono Lake’s changing habitats program is geared toward children and adults alike. Learn some of the science behind the issue of climate change, why it’s important, and talk about future solutions!

Join us Tuesday through Saturday at 11:00am on the front patio of the Mono Lake Committee Information Center & Bookstore, located on the corner of Third Street and Highway 395 in Lee Vining.
