203 Oasis in the desert: Black Lake Preserve
restoration plants birds
A rare wetland between the Benton Range and Black Mountain, Adobe Valley's Black Lake is home to a vast variety of unusual flora and fauna. Designated as an Important Bird Area, Black Lake is critical to supporting avian populations: it serves as a breeding outpost for dozens of migrating bird species and also provides a vital water source for pronghorn, mule deer, Great Basin spadefoot toad, and Wong's springsnail. Thanks to a generous property donation in 2014, Black Lake Preserve is now owned by Eastern Sierra Land Trust. Join Land Trust staff as they lead an early-morning walking tour of this protected alkali lake and wetland. Likely sights include rare alkali meadow plants, waterfowl, shorebirds, and, if we are lucky, Loggerhead Shrike. Bring snacks, water, and sunscreen.
