Description

The Mono Lake Defender of the Trust Award Dinner is a celebratory evening in the company of fellow champions of Mono Lake. We begin at 4pm with a wine tasting and silent auction hosted by Barefoot Wine & Bubbly followed by dinner and the award ceremony with inspiring speakers and entertaining stories from 6–9:00pm.

The Mono Lake Committee gives the Defender of the Trust Award to individuals who have made extraordinary contributions to champion Mono Lake, its tributary streams, wetlands, and the public trust.

"The public trust ... is an affirmation of the duty of the state to protect the people's common heritage of streams, lakes, marshlands and tidelands..." —Supreme Court of California, 1983

This year we will honor hydrogeographer Peter Vorster with the Defender of the Trust Award.

Peter’s support of the Mono Lake Committee spans four decades—from the early days in Lee Vining galvanizing support for the lake to providing expert testimony to courts and the State Water Board, to working with the Los Angeles Department of Water & Power to implement successful stream restoration. His lake level forecast model and knowledge of California water management provided the foundational hydrologic science the Committee needed to win protections for Mono Lake, its tributary streams, and wetlands, and for decision-makers to order lasting protections. Peter’s extraordinary passion for the Mono Basin and the Public Trust has made restoration of Mono Lake and threatened aquatic ecosystems throughout California possible.

The evening will be a celebration of the progress the Mono Lake Committee has made in protection, restoration, science, and education programs at Mono Lake, and the people who make it all possible.
