Join us this Friday, November 9, from 3:00–5:00pm at the Mono Lake Committee Information Center & Bookstore for a book reading and signing with editors Dave & Ilyssa Kyu, as they present their new compilation Campfire Stories: Tales from America’s National Parks.

Campfire Stories brings together tales about our national parks—some by well-known writers such as John Muir, Bill Bryson, and Terry Tempest Williams—with other essays from pioneer diaries and stories that have been passed down through generations of indigenous peoples.

Stop by on Friday to meet the authors, enjoy excerpts from their book, and pick up your own copy—we hope to see you there!

The Mono Lake Committee invites you to submit photographs for the 2020 Mono Lake Calendar—we are seeking photographs of the highest caliber that capture the spirit and reflect the unique qualities of Mono Lake, its tributary streams, the high country, and wildlife of the Mono Basin.

Find the submission guidelines and forms here. The deadline for submissions, as always, is October 31.

We are looking for images of scenes within the watershed boundary of Mono Lake, and possible subjects include, but are not limited to: plants, geologic features, streams, mountains, weather, fall colors, and wildlife. Images of sand tufa (which are different from regular tufa towers) will not be considered due to the degradation affecting these features. Where possible, images identifiable within the context of Mono Lake’s and/or the Mono Basin’s unique scenic beauty will receive preference. In striving to represent the natural beauty of Mono Lake, images that are obviously or heavily filtered or manipulated will not be considered. (more…)
