Refreshments with Refreshing 'Ologists

Join us each summer for the Mono Lake Committee's Refreshments with Refreshing 'Ologists lecture series, featuring scientists presenting their work in the region.

• Due to COVID-19, Refreshing 'Ologists lectures will not be taking place in 2020. See more COVID-19 updates here. •

During the summer (roughly July through September), Refreshing 'Ologists lectures happen on Wednesdays at 4:00pm in the Mono Lake Committee Information Center & Bookstore gallery. Presentations last about one hour and include light refreshments.

The talks are great opportunities to hear from the researchers who are conducting studies in the Mono Basin and the surrounding area on topics like hydrology, wildlife, birds, climate change, and more.

Ever since the Mono Lake Committee's founders conducted the first ecological study of Mono Lake in 1976, scientific research has provided ecosystem and landscape knowledge that is the foundation of Mono Lake's protections. The Committee is proud to host this lecture series to continue the tradition of scientific inquiry in the Mono Basin. Find all previous Refreshing 'Ologists presentations on the Mono-logue.
