Mammoth Lakes Tourism

 Mammoth Lakes Tourism contributes $100,000 toward lake preservation.

In collaboration with Clean Up The Lake (CUTL), Mammoth Lakes Tourism (MLT) has launched a new fundraising initiative to clean up the lakes in the area. MLT will match every dollar raised over the following four years (up to $100,000).

Over the past year, pilot research dives in Lake George, Twin Lakes, Lake Mary, and Lake Mamie in the Mammoth Lakes Basin led to a better understanding of the environmental issues present and the remediation needed to ensure the wellbeing and continued protection of the region’s namesake treasures.

Beginning this week, CUTL volunteers will start a comprehensive cleanup and aquatic invasive species survey of Lake George’s 2-mile perimeter in collaboration with volunteer scuba divers, free divers, and kayakers to remove fishing debris, plastic pollution, and understand other environmental threats.

This fall, I’m working in the Mammoth Lakes Basin, and I couldn’t be more thrilled about it, said Colin West, founder and executive director of CUTL. Action is required to assure the continued conservation of the Sierra’s most important resource since there is a significant litter problem that has gone unaddressed for decades.

Over the following four years, CUTL will also collaborate with MLT to engage visitors and members of the neighborhood in order to promote education and expand volunteer initiatives aimed at resolving the current problems.

The partnership’s primary objectives are the elimination of submerged litter, the documentation of any and all aquatic invasive species threatening the lakes, the protection of animal species above and below the water, and the averting of further pollution.

“Our investment in this program is a commitment to the natural resources that make this place so special,” said John Urdi, executive director of MLT. Not only will this work immediately affect our magnificent alpine lakes, but it will also emphasize how crucial it is to preserve our recreational spaces for both locals and tourists. Just below the surface, a significant impact on our environment is taking place. Out of sight and out of mind, much of this trash is.
