Each winter the Mono Lake Committee hosts the Wild & Scenic Film Festival in Los Angeles, and this year is no exception. The festival features new short films on natural wonders, conservation, inspirational stories, and outdoor adventure. Not only are the films fun and motivating, but the proceeds from the event go to the Committee’s Outdoor Education Center programs that bring youth from Los Angeles to visit Mono Lake and be inspired themselves.

Wild and Scenic Film Festival, Los Angeles - March 5, 2015

Please plan to join us on Thursday, March 5 at the Old Town Music Hall in El Segundo from 7:00–10:00pm to support the Mono Lake Committee and enjoy an evening of beautiful and uplifting films. This fun community event is made possible by the support and attendance of our members, and contributions from festival sponsors (Patagonia, Klean Kanteen, Sierra Nevada Brewing Company, Barefoot Wine & Bubbly, Orion Magazine, Clif Bar, EarthJustice), and our local sponsors (Barefoot Wine & Bubbly and Chevron).

Ticket sales begin on February 5, and we’ll be posting festival updates on FacebookTwitter, and here on the Mono-logue.

My most recent inspection of the launch site has left me with an entirely different feeling: I get a pain in my lower back just looking at it! You see, before our visitors can float above bubbling springs with attendant plumes of brine shrimp, and canoe guides can poetically interpret their surroundings, we have to get the people into the boat and get it afloat.

We used to load the canoes from a sandy beach where passengers would board with dry feet, and guides could shove off and shortly be afloat. Unfortunately after three years of—dare I say it— (more…)
