Mono Lake like another planet east of Sierra

When I viewed the list of the 70 state parks scheduled for closure, the biggest surprise was Mono Lake Tufa State Nature Reserve.

Is it possible that after decades of effort to save California's second-largest lake, we may lose it to budget cuts to save $111,000?

What does the state closure imply? The visitor center is the Mono Basin National Forest Scenic Area Visitor Center. Who runs what in the basin?

From the FS site:
http://www.fs.usda.gov/detail/inyo/specialplaces/?cid=stelprdb5129903

"To help protect the unique ecological and cultural resources of the Mono Basin, the U.S. Congress invented the concept of the National Scenic Area, and in 1984 designated the Mono Basin National Scenic Area--the first in U.S. history."
