Tourism and the Salton Sea

Various surveys conducted by Visit Greater Palm Springs (Visit GPS) have consistently revealed that the millions who visit the Coachella Valley are attracted to the area, in a large part, because of the high quality of our destination’s idyllic environment, including fresh clean air, clear night skies and bright sunny weather. In light of Visit GPS' mission and purpose, the restoration of the Salton Sea is a particularly important issue to Visit GPS. We are dedicated to assisting in finding solutions by raising awareness with this vital study and promoting public support with education and on-going campaigns to raise attention to the urgent need to save the Salton Sea.    

Key Contacts & Groups

Collaboration is imperative to raising awareness and working to gain support for the Salton Sea’s revitalization. Visit GPS is working on many levels—local, state and federal—as well as many organizations with the same goal. Sharing the involved list of key contacts is one way we can mentor support and collaboration.

Doing Your Part to Save the Sea

If you live in Greater Palm Springs or love to visit, the future of the Salton Sea impacts you directly. Even though there is a big task ahead to revitalize the Salton Sea, you can be a part of the solution in several important ways.

You can call or write a letter of support to your legislator or the Governor. You should also be aware of the important factors concerning proposed bills that will fund the revitalization of the Salton Sea and vote to support them.

If you want to be more involved, consider being involved in these groups that work to bring awareness of the Salton Sea through programs and recreation.
