The Sea and Desert Interpretive Association (SDIA) is a non-profit organization partnered with the California Department of Parks and Recreation for the betterment of the Salton Sea region.

The Salton Sea is 13 miles wide, 33 miles long, and is California's largest body of water. It is home to fish such as the endangered Desert Pup Fish and to millions of Tilapia.

Over 400 species of birds make the Salton Sea area their winter home.

SDIA helps to raise funds to keep open the Salton Sea State Recreation Area, and to educate the public as to the importance of restoring, preserving and protecting the Salton Sea.

The association promotes activities that interpret the natural and historical resources of the area, and also operates the Visitors Center, Camp Store, and kayak rentals. SDIA's many activities and efforts are supported by a dynamic corps of volunteers.
