Natural History of Mono Lake

Join David Wimpfheimer to explore one of the most dynamic ecosystems on the planet. We’ll start this adventure by kayaking the lake’s southern shore so we can glide by oddly wonderful tufa towers, and hopefully encounter hundreds of phalaropes where we’ll learn how their fate is tied to the trillions of brine shrimp in the lake. The basin contains geologic wonders not found anywhere else in the world like the tufa formations, the oldest lake on the continent and its youngest mountain range. Saturday’s focus will be Lundy Canyon because of it’s incredible botanical diversity and waterfalls in a spectacular canyon. The rest of the weekend features several short hikes to young volcanic domes, sagebrush meadows, mixed conifer woods and riparian forests. These habitats are the breeding zones for many birds, including green tailed towhee, sage thrasher and townsend’s solitaire. The battle to save Mono Lake was one of the most influential environmental victories of the twentieth century. Accommodations are not included. To Register for this MeetUp please visit:
