This post was written by Erika Obedzinski, 2008 Office Director.

Thank you to all of you that have been doing some of your holiday shopping through the Mono Lake Committee! We appreciate the support this generates both in getting the word out to others about Mono Lake and the revenue it generates, especially in this tough economic time.

This morning dawned frosty and clear on a rising Mono Lake. Today’s elevation is 6382.19 feet above sea level. This is about a tenth of a foot higher than it was a month ago, when it reached its lowest point for the year.

Tonight, November 23, 2008, is a big night for Mono Lake. It will be featured in a full hour on KCET (the Los Angeles PBS station) in the show California’s Gold!

It’s particularly fun because the show includes both his visit of 15 years ago and his return this summer to see the how our hard-won implementation of the lake’s protection is proceeding.

I enjoyed spending the day with Huell. I think … more »
