The battle to water Long and Little Round Valleys heats up
Every meeting should start with deviled eggs, Oreos and coffee. On Tuesday night at the Crowley Lake Community Center about forty people gathered to hear Matt McClain, Executive Director of Mammoth Lakes Recreation (MLR), speak about the Keep Long Valley Green campaign. The event was sponsored by the Sierra Club, one of four non-governmental organizations which has created the campaign: MLR, the Sierra Club Range of Light Group, Friends of the Inyo, and Eastern Sierra Land Trust.
Although it’s not mentioned in the campaign’s name, Little Round Valley is also part of the dewatered area.
