September 10 @ 8:00 am 5:00 pm

The Mono Basin extension of the Los Angeles Aqueduct began exporting water 350 miles south to the City of LA in 1941. Today, the aqueduct must balance competing needs instead of exclusively serving one. Join Mono Lake Committee Education Director Rose Nelson for a focused, field-based investigation of the north end of the aqueduct. This field seminar will provide a great overview of the Mono Basin system, the Los Angeles Aqueduct, and a few of the historical, engineering, and ecological anecdotes that make up this fascinating water infrastructure.

Activity level: EASY

This seminar’s activity level: easy. We will be walking short distances from cars on mostly graded or well-established flat trails. There will be a few short off trail sections in soft sand on relatively flat ground. Many locations are in full sun and the seminar will require quite a bit of standing.
