We love talking to folks about Mono Lake, especially people who are interested in looking at the Mono Lake story within the larger context of saline lakes. Such was the case when Mono Lake Committee Executive Director Geoffrey McQuilkin joined E&E Greenwire reporter Jeremy Jacobs for a lakeshore exploration this past April.

Jacobs is writing a series on “Dead Seas” that is worth reading to learn more about the Salton Sea and Owens Lake. For sure, you won’t want to miss the newest installment that focuses on Mono Lake. You can read the full story “Drought Threatens ‘genius’ regs that stopped L.A. water grab” here.

The day I knew

This post was written by Erica Stephens, 2014 Mono Lake Intern.

Making the long journey up Highway 395 north to the Mono Basin and Eastern Sierra was always the highlight of my summers growing up. Originally from Southern California, I am used to palm trees, sirens whizzing by, crowds, malls, and a Starbucks on every corner. Everyone always seems to be on the move and everywhere you go, places are bustling with business. I come from this sort of lifestyle and consider myself to be a true California beach bum from the Long Beach area.

Yet the city life was not all I was accustomed to since I was fortunate enough to have had an amazing outdoor education experience at Camp Hi-Hill during the fifth grade. (more…)
