Open 8:00am to 6:00pm for Memorial Day weekend

When you’re passing through Lee Vining this weekend, you might wonder, “What’s that light doing on? Why are people going into the Mono Lake Committee? It’s after 5:00pm. Aren’t they closed?” Not so for the upcoming holiday weekend!

For Memorial Day weekend, the Information Center & Bookstore will be open extended hours: 8:00am–6:00pm from Friday, May 23, through Monday, May 26. Do you need directions or information first thing in the morning? That’s what we’re here for! Would you like a unique T-shirt for your burgeoning collection? Come on in!

We hope to see you this weekend or, if not, we hope to see you soon. We will resume our usual 9:00am–5:00pm hours from Tuesday, May 27 until the Mono Basin Bird Chautauqua in mid-June. Look for extended hours again as summer approaches. Long live Mono Lake!
