Product Description: 

Tulare Lake in California's Central Valley was once the largest lake west of the Mississippi. By 1910, the lake had been completely dried up by water diversion and land reclamation, along with the dislocation of the Valley's indigenous people. Today the region maintains the most productive agricultural land in the world, and in the same locale, the most impoverished Congressional District. Today a visionary land owner has begun adjusting to climate change by advocating partial restoration of what was once Tulare Lake. Along with his new ideas, a successful and impressive lake and marsh restoration project is already underway.
