Owens Lake is where water, vast open sky, the high rise of the Sierra Nevada, thousands of migratory birds, and the story of human presence come together to define the geography of a special place. Also, Owens Lake’s story is a true story with a happy ending. For thousands of years, migratory birds paused at Owens Lake along their annual migration between the northern and southern hemispheres, however, when water was diverted from the Owens Valley in the early 1900’s, Owens Lake dried, and the birds disappeared. Now, through restoration efforts, habitat has been returned to the lake, attracting birds once more. Owens Lake, designated as an Important Bird Area (IBA) by the National Audubon Society, again offers world-class wildlife viewing in the southern Owens Valley.

Geology, birding, wildflowers, historic and nature tours into other habitats including the Owens Lake and Alabama Hills. Keynote speakers, opening reception, silent auction.
