Help Restore the Salton Sea

Posted by ardeidae on August 17, 2005

This past Sunday, I went on a birding trip to the Salton Sea, which is about 130 miles east of San Diego. What an amazing place and an excellent area to see birds! I will have a full report, along with photos online in the next few days, but right now the Salton Sea Coalition, of which I belong, needs your help.

The Salton Sea Coalition has asked that $300 million in funding for implementation of restoration at the Salton Sea be included in SB 153.  We need each of you to write to senator Chesbro urging him to do this.  Any of you who reside in assemblywoman Bonnie Garcia’s district or are represented by senator Jim Batten, please write to them as well. Please also forward this to anyone else you can think of that would be willing to help us get this funding.

This action needs to be taken prior to Thursday, August 25th.

If you would like to read SB 153, go to http://info.sen.ca.gov/pub/bill/sen/sb_0151-0200/sb_153_bill_20050711_amended_asm.html. Also forward this message to anyone else you can think of that would be willing to help us get this funding.

Below are sample letters and contact information.
