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…)

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.

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…)

As a Bishop native, I’m no stranger to quiet streets and brisk winter days. However, there aren’t many experiences that can entirely prepare a person for a winter in Lee Vining.

Having first moved here at the beginning of summer to work as an intern, I knew I would be coming to a very small town with entertainment that consisted more of being outside than going shopping or to movie theaters. Most people who (more…)
