Scenic Area Visitor CenterThe Mono Basin National Forest Scenic Area Visitor Center opened in 1992, and provides an excellent introduction to the Mono Basin.

The center has interactive displays that teach about many aspects of the Mono Basin's geology, ecology, and human history. The award-winning film Of Ice and Fire: A Portrait of the Mono Basin gives a splendid 20-minute introduction to Mono Lake and is shown regularly. Two galleries are showcased, including the At Mono Lake photo exhibit and a changing art exhibit. Rangers are present all day to answer your questions, and there is also a bookstore with a great selection of books about the natural and cultural history of the region. This visitor center is located at the north end of Lee Vining. Call the visitor center for more information at (760) 647-3044.
