Community Conversation at the Salton Sea/Conversación Communitaria Sobre la Laguna Salton Sea
North Shore Beach & Yacht Club
North Shore, CA
Share this event:




The "Community Conversation at the Salton Sea" is planned to be a space where there can be free interchange of information among agency, academic and community organizational personnel and community members. It will be an informal way for information to be shared with community members about the work being done by multiple stakeholders and to discuss plans the State of California has for the Salton Sea while focusing on community expectations and impacts.

We will open the meeting with remarks from Silvia Paz, Director of Building Healthy Communities - Eastern Coachella Valley, and Gail Wadsworth, Executive Director of California Institute for Rural Studies. These will be followed by panel discussions. The first panel of community residents will share their stories of what it is like to live near the Sea, how life may have changed over their residencies and what hopes they have for the Sea, going forward. Then the other panels of agency personnel, academics and community benefit organizations/non-profits who are invested in the region/sea will each speak about their work and challenges/successes. Each panel will be moderated by a community resident.

The event will be free, snacks and lunch will be provided, as well as childcare and English/Spanish interpretation.
