Owens Lake’s Returning Wildlife – Its Hemispheric Importance

April 3, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Event Navigation

Hundreds of thousands of shorebirds and waterfowl have returned to Owens Lake as a result of lakebed flooding by the City of Los Angeles to mitigate lake bottom dust emissions.  The dust mitigation project modified habitat conditions so that the lake became a stopover for rest, forage and energy replenishment for birds migrating along the Pacific Flyway.

Learn about this remarkable environmental success and efforts to make Owens Lake a lasting habitat for wildlife during Desert Survivors’ online Zoom presentation by Michael Prather, a noted birding expert.
