253 Meet the chipmunks
Learn about the Mono Basin's diverse and engaging chipmunks and their ground squirrel relatives. Chipmunks are familiar campground inhabitants, but distinguishing the six species that inhabit the Mono Basin can be difficult. We'll visit Mono Mills, where the open Jeffrey Pine forest and Sagebrush scrub habitats provide opportunities to observe chipmunks in the field. We should be able to see Sagebrush, Yellow Pine, and Lodgepole Chipmunks as well as Golden-mantled Ground Squirrels and we'll discuss other good locations in the Mono Basin to look for chipmunks and other mammals that may be out during the day. Open to kids of all ages. (est. driving miles: 26; hiking difficulty: moderate, flat but some sandy soil)
