SALTON SEA STATE RECREATION AREA
A 3-hour drive east of Los Angeles lays a quiet desert lake, once a recreational Mecca for thousands of weekend tourists in the 50s and 60s. An ancient seabed, the Salton Sea once thrived with sea life but is now home to a dwindling population of fish and migrating birds able to tolerate the raising salinity.
Recreational visitors still enjoy the largest California lake offering boating, skiing, fishing and bird watching set against the desert backdrop of the Santa Rosa Mountains. The newly renovated 1,800 SF Visitor Center instills a sense of wonder and educates visitors about this inland Sea, the history and recent environmental dynamics. We integrated the information area, sales cases and numerous mounts with a series of seven interpretive panels and simple interactives.
