The Andrea Lawrence Award Dinner is a chance to gather in memory of Andrea, enjoying delicious food and lively conversation with a spectacular view of Mt. Andrea Lawrence. We’ll also present the Andrea Lawrence Award for passionate engagement in community and the land to retired California State Park ranger Dave Marquart, who has been a influential presence in the Mono Basin throughout his career.

During his 36 years as a ranger Dave has been a dedicated steward to the lands of the Mono Basin and an incredibly skilled interpreter. He has led countless guided walks and instilled within three decades of visitors a greater appreciation and understanding of Mono Lake.

Through the Andrea Lawrence Fund, the Mono Lake Committee works to promote and celebrate passionate engagement in community and the land with an emphasis on encouraging collaboration and inspiring youth to become environmental leaders. Proceeds for this event will contribute towards this fund.
