Eastern Sierra Interpretive Association will purchase two Global Positioning System (GPS) units to preserve Mono Lake Tufa State Natural Reserve and Bodie State Historic Park for future generations to come. Through mapping of park boundaries, exotic and/or invasive species, critical wetland habitats, bird nesting areas and archeological artifacts, valuable information will be available to assist with the long term resource protection of these parks.
"We are excited to receive funding to purchase these GPS units. They will enable us to do a never before completed exotic species assessment of state park lands within the State Natural Reserve in the Mono Basin. We simply cannot do this work at the present time with available resources."
- Dave Marquart, State Park Interpreter, Mono Lake Tufa State Natural Reserve
