Free Salton Sea Webinar Feb. 20

from Audubon

Learn about the Salton Sea from our Experts
Audubon’s priority saline (salty) lake ecosystems—Great Salt Lake, Lahontan Valley, Salton Sea, Owens Lake, Mono Lake, and Lake Abert—are essential to birds and at risk due to changes in water quality, quantity, and timing of water delivery. These changes are brought on by drought, diversions, and climate change.

In this webinar on Thursday, February 20 at 3p.m. PT/4p.m. MT, we will focus on a unique ecosystem that lies at the intersection of Audubon’s Western Water priority landscapes: The Salton Sea.

Two members of Audubon California’s Salton Sea team, Andrea Jones (Director of Bird Conservation) and Frank Ruiz (Salton Sea Program Director) will discuss the history and current status of the Salton Sea, its relationship to the Colorado River and Delta, the status of birds, policy initiatives, and community engagement and education programs. Learn how you can contribute to our efforts at the Salton Sea, both locally and remotely. Sign up.
