Mono Lake Committee


The Mono Lake Committee

Since 1978, the Mono Lake Committee has fought to protect Mono Lake from excessive water diversions to Los Angeles.

Through litigation, legislation, cooperation, and most importantly, public support, our efforts have been successful so far.

However, the fight to protect and restore Mono Lake is far from over. Much work remains to restore desiccated waterfowl habitat and riparian vegetation, educate the public, promote water conservation, and maintain Mono Lake's protected status in state and federal political arenas.

2019 Mono Lake Committee staff

You can help! Join the Mono Lake Committee's 16,000 members and become a part of this effort. The basic membership is just $25, which supports the Committee's protection, restoration, and education work. Members receive the quarterly Mono Lake Newsletter, get access to special members-only areas of the website, receive action alerts for critical policy issues, and get the first chance to sign up for Field Seminars. The Mono Lake Committee is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization and donations are tax-deductible to the full extent of the law.
