More than 275 people have already signed up, and we expect many more programs to fill, so now is the time to register and reserve your spot in the events of your choice.

The Chautauqua is a vibrant celebration of birds, natural history, and the Mono Basin. The small town of Lee Vining fills up with birders, Mono Lake Committee members, and friends from all 17 years of the event’s history—it really feels like a reunion weekend.
