Tallgrass Hiking and Tours

The Agri-Tours takes you to the heart of eastern Coachella Valley’s growing area. Get a close up look of how local farmers plant, cultivate and harvest. See hundreds of acres of table grapes, groves of citrus, majestic fields of vegetables, and the largest date production and harvest in the western world. Take a tour to the largest inland body of water in California and the second largest body of saltwater in the USA. The Salton Sea, some 35 miles long and 15 miles wide, is on the Pacific Flyway where more than 400 species of migratory birds visit annually. Observe them at the Sonny Bono Wildlife Preserve. Also in this vicinity, see where the San Andreas Fault surfaces and creates geothermal energy; and visit the colorful Salvation Mountain, an American Folk Art treasure.
