314 Saline lake ecology
Join Jaimi Butler and Mono Lake Committee Eastern Sierra Policy Director Bartshé Miller along the shore of Mono Lake to learn about the fascinating natural history and importance of unique ecosystems like Mono Lake and Great Salt Lake in the context of the Great Basin, the Western Hemisphere, and saline lakes worldwide. Watch Eared Grebes chase alkali flies on the rising waters of Mono Lake, learn about the colonies of California Gulls at Mono Lake and Great Salt Lake, and, if you're lucky, catch a glimpse of a late spring or early fall migrant Wilson's Phalarope. There is also the possibility of catching a glimpse of a Sage Thrasher or Sagebrush Sparrow. Bring snacks, water, and sunscreen.
