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.

Coming to an end: Reflections from two summers in the Mono Basin

“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…)

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.

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…)

Mono Lake Interns then and now: Erik Lyon

Regulars to Mono Lake will likely remember Erik Lyon, a wonderfully goofy guy (see photo below) who worked at the Mono Lake Committee during the summers of 2011 to 2013. Beloved by staff, Erik is missed this summer, but we are thrilled to hear about his new exciting life in Seattle, Washington.

Erik’s first experience with Mono Lake was unusual … in that he hated it. Dragged to Mono Lake by his parents during a long road trip, Erik was sick and exhausted when he first met the beautiful tufa tours he came to love. An experience so terrible, he claims to lack much memory of it. (more…)

Mono Lake Interns then and now: Lisa Curtis

This post was written by Julie Curtis, 2014 Mono Lake Intern.

Over the years the Mono Lake Committee has attracted hundreds of young, passionate environmentalists looking for involvement in Mono Lake’s story. Whether in college, fresh out of school or like this year’s two Birding Interns, retired folks looking to help out, the seasonal staff plays a huge role in keeping the Mono Lake Committee a well-oiled machine during the summer months. I am not alone in feeling that what I have given the Committee cannot compare to what the people, experiences, and natural world in the Eastern Sierra has given me. The incredible Mono Lake story is infectious and continues to inspire me as I head further into the field of environmental studies.

The departures of seasonal staff occurs in two waves each year—in the end of August and the beginning of November. Once departed, it largely becomes a mystery where these individuals full of fun Mono Lake facts end up. Luckily, many keep in touch. One retired intern in particular is pretty much forced into keeping in touch with me. My sister Lisa Curtis was a Mono Lake Intern seven years ago (more…)

Do you know someone who has wanted to work at the Mono Lake Committee but couldn’t commit for the whole summer? Right now we have a unique offering—two Information Center & Bookstore Intern positions. This internship will last only six weeks, starting August 6 and continuing through September 30.

Apply for the Information Center & Bookstore Intern position to come work at Mono Lake and hone your customer service skills! Photo by Elin Ljung.

Several of our current Mono Lake Interns are heading back to school in early August—we wish them well and support their thirst for further education. However, this leaves us looking for qualified applicants to help us finish the busy summer season.

The Information Center & Bookstore Interns will help out in the Information Center & Bookstore, assisting visitors to the Mono Basin and working with store customers. This is a chance to spend time in the Mono Basin while honing your customer service skills and building your knowledge of this special area.

Check out the full job description here. The positions will remain open until filled. Call Office Manager Terry McLaughlin at (760) 647-6595 with questions.

From the Midwest to Mono: A journey

This post was written by Adam Dalton, 2014 Mono Lake Intern.

In early January I began to worry—it was winter break as I sat frantically searching the internet for internships on my laptop while sub-zero winter winds whipped the windows of my Iowa home. Many of my friends had already applied for internships for the summer and I, procrastinating as usual, had failed to look at any of the internship databases available to Grinnell College students. As I frantically searched the many available websites I kept running into dead ends such as: missed deadlines, unavailability due to major specifications, and general lack of interest. As my frustration neared a peak, in a near-godsend moment, I stumbled across the position of Mono Lake Committee Intern.

Being a lifelong Midwesterner, I had never heard of Mono Lake or the Mono Lake Committee but the internship looked perfect; I would be able to work in one of the most beautiful areas of the United States and focus on water issues, which I am passionate about. Furthermore, I was emotionally struck by the amazing story of (more…)
