Tufa towers emerging from Mono Lake at sunset with blue skies and unusual clouds lit up in soft pink with beautiful soft light on the tufa towers reflected in the lake's surface, and you can even see some of the rocky shoreline under water.

About Us

A big blue expanse of Mono Lake and equally blue sky with a few puffy white clouds as four people swim and float in Mono Lake with four tufa towers in the distance and a couple of California Gulls on the surface of the lake too.

The Mono Lake Committee

The Mono Lake Committee is inspired by a love for this beautiful place—where a remarkable salt lake lies at the center of a landscape and ecosystem unmatched. Our vision is of a healthy, protected, and wild Mono Basin and of an organization that seeks positive, principled, proactive solutions to challenges.
