WALKING WATER is an invitation, an action, an educational journey and a prayer intended to bring together the voices of the many Peoples of the Eastern Sierra and Los Angeles watersheds through the act of walking together, following the waterways — natural and manmade — between Mono Lake and Los Angeles.

It is a call for collaboration, joining together in vision and hope for water. Throughout the coming year this website will grow as the dream of Walking Water grows, we welcome you to be part of the journey.

This short video was made by Jim Whitney and intends to capture a little of the vision of Walking Water and the beauty of the Valley. A huge thanks to Jim for giving his time and expertise and to all those involved.
