Owens Lake’s Returning Wildlife – Its Hemispheric Importance

Zoom Meeting Bishop, CA

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.
