Mono Lake's "South Tufa" area

The Mono Lake Tufa State Reserve is located near Yosemite National Park within Mono County, in eastern California. It was established in 1981[1] by the California State Legislature, to preserve the natural limestone "tufa tower" formations at Mono Lake.[2]



California State Park Rangers were charged with conducting interpretive talks and tours along the shores of Mono Lake, as well as protecting the resources. In 1984 the Federal Government designated surrounding lands as the Mono Basin National Forest Scenic Area.[3][4] Since that time visitor services have been offered as a cooperative effort between these two agencies, as well as the Mono Lake Committee.[5]
