Ongoing campaign: #savethetufa

Tufa is one of Mono Lake’s most iconic and popular features. 

Unfortunately, people often climb on, stand on, and otherwise (knowingly or unknowingly) damage the tufa. Not only does damaging tufa negatively impact Mono Lake’s scenic value and fragile ecosystem, but it is also illegal under California State Park regulations.

When you visit Mono Lake you can help save the tufa by enjoying and taking photos of the spectacular formations from the ground, rather than standing or climbing on them. Also, make sure others in your group know to be careful around the fragile tufa. Share your responsibly-taken tufa photos with the hashtag #savethetufa to encourage others to take care of the tufa too.
