"Important Birds of Ancient Lake Cahuilla
and the Salton Sea"
with Kurt Leuschner, College of the Desert

Before the Salton Sea, there was Ancient Lake Cahuilla.   Only hundreds of years ago this giant freshwater lake filled the entire Salton Sink and most of the Coachella Valley.  Birds and people depended on this body of water just like they do today.  In this program you'll learn about the special birds associated with this lake that was six times bigger than today's Salton Sea.
