Mono Lake winter field seminars in 2019

October 18th, 2018 by Elin, Communications Coordinator

This coming winter we are pleased to offer three field seminars to take advantage of this very special season—two winter photography seminars and one winter ecology seminar!

Registration will open on Thursday, November 1 at 9:00am. To sign up, call (760) 647-6595 or register online.

Both winter photography seminars will be led by Joe Decker, veteran of many Mono Basin and polar winters. Joe will guide participants to the best photographic opportunities in winter, with a nearly-full moon in January and the dark skies of a new moon in February. Both seminars will include the traditional Saturday dinner catered by Linda Dore at Epic Cafe.

In the winter ecology seminar, join Mono Lake Committee Lead Naturalist Guide Nora Livingston for a investigation into the Mono Basin’s winter weather patterns, plant and animal adaptations to winter, and how humans cope with the cold season as well.

Come prepared for cold winter weather. These seminars will take place regardless of weather or road conditions. There will be no refunds due to weather. Cost is for tuition only; participants must arrange their own accommodations. The ecology seminar is limited to 10 participants and the photography seminars are limited to 15 participants.
