We are excited to announce the Mono Lake Committee’s fifth annual Wild & Scenic Film Festival in Los Angeles this spring. The festival features inspiring films on outdoor adventure, environmental activism, natural wonders, and more. This year we are expanding the festival to a second date and venue!

WSFF 2016

All proceeds from the event go toward the Committee’s Outdoor Education Center programs, which bring youth from Los Angeles to the Mono Basin to learn about where their water comes from and allows them to experience this magical place.

We hope you plan to join us this year to see these inspiring films and support outdoor education programs at Mono Lake! We look forward to reconnecting with Committee members and friends of the Los Angeles area who help make our work here possible and we’ll continue to post festival updates here on the Mono-logue. Stay tuned for information about tickets, which will be on sale soon!

Last year friends and members of the Mono Lake Committee raised over $4,100 for Mono Lake just by clicking a link!

This link allows the Mono Lake Committee to benefit from purchases made on Amazon. Every time the link is used to access Amazon for online shopping the Mono Lake Committee receives 5% of those sales as an Amazon Affiliate. (That’s right—5%!)

Since we became a part of this effective program, we have been steadily increasing the funds raised each year, and 2015 was our most successful year yet—marking a 52% increase from 2014!

Take a look at this graph, and it becomes apparent that our wonderful members and friends have been spreading the word about this great way to raise money for the Mono Lake Committee. So, remember to keep us in mind when you do your online shopping, and continue sharing this link with your friends and family—let’s make 2016 another chart-topping year!

This new year looks bright and beautiful from shore of Mono Lake—we hope it brings an end to the drought, a new water license for the Los Angeles Department of Water & Power, rushing meltwater surging down the streams in spring, and many new advocates for this important place.

We hope you’ll consider making a year-end donation to help these ongoing efforts.

Interns then and now: Randy Arnold

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…)

Last chance for Mono Lake Committee holiday gifts—order before it’s too late

If you’ve ever visited the Mono Lake Committee Information Center & Bookstore in person, then you know our location is quite remote. As a result, mail shipped from the Mono Lake Committee isn’t as speedy as mail from, say, Los Angeles or the Bay Area. Add in the possibility of winter storms and delayed travel, and you’ll understand how the term “snail mail” came to be.

holiday-shopping-2015-complete-grid

We want to make sure you get your Mono Lake Committee gifts by Christmas—therefore, we are now sending out our last call for shipping. Place your orders by Wednesday, December 16 to ensure that they reach you by Christmas using standard shipping. Place your orders by Friday, December 18 and select expedited shipping if you’re placing a last-minute order (added charges will apply). And once again, thank you so much for your support!

Mono Lake in High Country News

High-Country-News-with-Mono-IMG_4143You may have noticed that our favorite lake made an appearance in the latest issue of High Country News! Subscribers, check out the article online or in your print edition; non-subscribers can read the full article online in late December.

Reporter Madeleine Nash paid Mono Lake a visit at the beginning of last summer and explored the basin with scientist Scott Stine and many others. She walked the lakeshore and talked with Geoff, Lisa, Greg, and other Mono Lake Committee staff about big-picture philosophical water questions, including the regional impacts of climate change on Mono Lake. Her perceptive and well-written piece homes in on the issues that are shaping the challenges that lie ahead for the Committee and Mono Lake:

“Long after this dry spell ends, the worries it has awakened will shadow the future. How will Mono Lake fare in a world in which the carbon-loaded climate threatens to become unhinged, raising the specter of droughts more profound than any we’ve ever experienced? Will it stand as a shining example of how people can use natural resources without destroying them? Or will it be regarded as a lesson in limits, so that the best we can hope for is to keep this strange inland sea in a liminal state, neither optimally full nor desperately empty?”
