The sun sets on an intern’s time at Mono Lake

I had been in the computer lab at Colorado State University all day working on my final GIS project when I received the call that I was being offered a position as an intern with the Mono Lake Committee for the summer. I couldn’t have been more thrilled to hear that I would be spending my summer with the Mono Lake Committee. I got an A on that project, graduated with my BS in Human Dimensions of Natural Resources, and moved to Lee Vining in a flash.

During this beautiful day of training early in the summer, all the new seasonal staff were learning about Mono Lake’s ecology from Education Director Bartshe Miller. Photo by Ava Stavros.

I had never been to Mono Lake before so I really didn’t know what I was in for, but my expectations for the summer were exceeded ten-fold. I will never forget the first time I saw Mono Lake: I was driving in from Highway 120 East and when the lake came into my view I couldn’t believe how huge it was. I knew it was going to be big, but it is truly vast. My first thought was (more…)

What does almost every permanent staff member at the Mono Lake Committee have in common? Most started their Committee careers as seasonal staff; either as Mono Lake Interns, Information Center & Bookstore Assistants, Canoe Coordinators, or Outdoor Education Instructors. We have all enjoyed leading canoe tours, interpretive programs, and worked shifts in the bookstore.

“My unorthodox journey to the Eastern Sierra and first two weeks of work at the Mono Lake Committee have been life-changing experiences (especially for someone who had never lived on his own or seen the American West before)….” —me, two years ago

Over two years ago the Mono Lake Committee took a chance and hired me, despite my intended economics major, failure to travel west of Omaha, Nebraska, and previous work experience consisting solely of foodservice-based work study at Grinnell College and technology replacement duties for Mason City, Iowa’s community school district. As you can see in my previous Mono-logue post, I was absolutely blown away by my initial experiences in the Mono Basin.

A lot has changed in my life since I first interned at the Mono Lake Committee two years ago; I’ve graduated from (more…)

Interns then and now: Randy Arnold

This post was written by Sara Matthews, 2015 & 2016 Mono Lake Intern.

I was first introduced to former Mono Lake Committee intern, Randy Arnold, amid the excitement of the runway at the Trail Chic fundraiser back in the summer days of June. The Mono Lake Committee was taking the opportunity to honor Randy Arnold for his continued support of the Mono Lake Committee and his ongoing support of non-profits through his work at Barefoot Wine. I didn’t quite know who the man radiating good nature and smiles was at the time, but luckily, in writing this piece I had the opportunity to find out.

This past summer, Randy (right) was presented with a Mono Lake Committee Board of Directors Resolution in recognition of his steadfast, fun, and creative dedication to Mono Lake. Education Director Bartshe Miller and Board member Martha Davis presented Randy with the resolution. Photo by Erv Nichols.

For 25 years, Randy has worked for Barefoot Wine and for most of that time he has also been a member of the Mono Lake Committee—a commitment spawned from his experiences as a youth. At 14 years old, he first laid eyes on Mono Lake (more…)
