LECTURE ON THE ANCIENT LAKE CAHUILLA THIS THURSDAY

The High Desert Nature Museum will hold a brown bag lecture this Thursday about the Salton Sea. Reporter Eric Knabe fills us in on the details…

This Thursday, the High Desert Nature Museum’s Brown bag lecture is “Important Birds of Ancient Lake Cahuilla and the Salton Sea,” presented by Kurt Leuschner, Professor of Natural Resources at College of the Desert.

Before the Salton Sea, there was ancient Lake Cahuilla. 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.

The High Desert Nature Museum is located in the Yucca Valley Community Center Complex, at 57116 Twentynine Palms Highway, Yucca Valley. The lecture start at 12:00 p.m. Admission is $ 5, free for members/sponsors. Refreshments will be served. For more information call 760-369-7212.
