Mono Lake Canoe Training

We recently completed canoe training with the summer interns at the Mono Lake Committee and some photos from that training follow. You can find the rest of the story here on the Mono Lake Committee’s Monologue.

Tufa forms when calcium in spring water mixes with carbonites in Mono Lake. Tufa grows under water. This tufa was exposed when lake levels dropped after the City of Los Angeles began water diversions starting in the 1940’s. Due to the court mandates the water level is once again rising.

Seasonal staff practice rescue techniques at Whitmore Pool in Mammoth, CA. Nestled amongst the Sierra Nevada Mountains the pool is fed by hot springs and is a great place to swim laps!
