The Desert Shores Restoration Project is a collaborative community restoration project that aims to create quality habitat, while mitigating local emissive dust and adverse environmental impacts by restoring the water level and quality of the “keys” in the Desert Shores community at California’s Salton Sea.
Imperial Irritation district has donated to us the land needed to build a berm at the entrance of the canals, so they can be refilled for a sustainable shoreline once again. This will keep dust down, improve the quality of life for residents, and give us water to work with for ongoing habitat restoration.
Imperial County and the California Natural Resources Agency are working on the build permitting for the berm while we are kicking off phase II of the project which will improve water quality and salinity for habitat in the keys, as well as drafting plans for The Salton Sea Restoration Center.
This will improve quality of life for residents, and animals, benefitting overall Salton Sea Restoration for the 10-Year plan and support long term efforts. Please contact us if you would like to support or volunteer to work on this project!
