The theme of this year's event is: The Cultural Implications of Ancient Lake Cahuilla (The Who, What, When, Where and How of Ancient Lake Cahuilla).

Most Southern Californians know about our man-made Salton Sea but few understand that intermittently, over thousands of years, there has been a vast natural fresh-water lake in the Salton Trough known as Lake Cahuilla. This valuable resource was utilized by the ancestors of the Cahuilla and Kumeyaay native peoples and others.
