NEPO+ is hosting a Pop Up Exhibition to raise awareness about the current environmental impact experienced by the Salton Sea Community
2024 SOS Earth Day Event Address:
The Salton Sea’s natural ecosystem is at the cusp of disappearing and its water depletion is increasing respiratory health issues for nearby communities. Without an instream of revenue supporting restoration projects at the Salton Sea, the management of its water resources becomes a growing concern and forces organizations to scavenge for funding for future projects. The Salton Sea's harsh environmental conditions is increasing each day and there needs to be a “Now Solution.”
The more people that can recognize the issue, the more support the community can gain to implement change.
Collaboration with local small businesses, the EcoMedia Compass non-profit, music production companies like Planet LA Records and Coconut Spaceship for a unique visitor experience.
It is critical to educate and connect with the community of Desert Shores, Bombay Beach, AGESS, SSAC, The EcoMedia Compass, indigenous tribes, and city officials.
