The festival is a fundraiser for the Mono Lake Committee’s Outdoor Education Center program, which brings underserved and at-risk Los Angeles youth to the source of LA’s drinking water at Mono Lake for week-long community-building experiences in the wild outdoors. The festival is also an opportunity to connect with people who love Mono Lake and the Eastern Sierra at the southern end of the Los Angeles Aqueduct.

See you in March!
