EcoMedia to 'Save Our Sea' in Salton City

EcoMedia Compass had a grand opening event in Salton City on April 18, 2015. EcoMedia is an environmental education 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. In 2011 it began the Save Our Sea (SOS) campaign and since that time has hosted many events to raise awareness about the Salton Sea. This event was well attended by the community and there are plans to have similar events in the future. It was also attended by non-community members concerned about the health of the Salton Sea and its surrounding population.

There was an exclusive screening of the latest Salton Sea documentary ‘Breaking Point’ by Polomar College in San Marcos, California. Team members of EcoMedia also participated in the making of the documentary. The official trailer for Breaking Point can be seen on youtube.com and breakingpointdoc.com. It has been screened at the Newport Beach Festival, Sedona Film Festival and the American Documentary Film Festival. All those in attendance at the grand opening that I spoke with expressed only positive comments about the quality of the documentary.

The list of speakers at this event included scientist, biologist, project managers and environmental managers. The speakers all provided excellent information relevant to the current ideas, possibilities, efforts and events taking place with the saving the Salton Sea.

One of the speakers, Aaron Borja, President of Agess, Inc, gave an overall presentation that was very interesting. It was a well thought out overview with insight and big picture thinking. Part of the presentation is available at http://www.agessin.com.

They had a raffle for art work done by local artist and there were three winners. Tours of the media room and a letter station that attendees could send opinion letters to local leaders and others. I much appreciated the gratitude wall acknowledging those who have helped along the way.

Save Our Sea headquarters is located at 2554 N. Marina Drive in Salton City. The facility is nice and has much information about the area. I encourage all to visit them and see all the good work they are doing and maybe even volunteer or donate. It will be staffed on Thursday and Friday through the summer.
