The organization runs education programs and conservancy efforts, but also manages a brick-and-mortar Information Center and bookstore, and offers in-person education programs, so the website needs to do a great job serving all those purposes and audiences.

When we met, the Mono Lake Committee’s site was dated and poorly organized. We built a clean, simple, and well-organized site using the Blocksy theme and Gutenberg blocks. We improved the navigation to helps users find just what they need, and added new taxonomies to the blog to better organize two decades of news articles. We also integrated the WordPress site with Luminate Online and created a beautiful new donation form.

The site’s event calendar allows folks to filter through different types of events to focus only on the ones that suit them, which is great UX considering the many and varied audiences Mono Lake appeals to.
