      Riverside County, Dos Palmas Preserve
      Dos Palmas is open year round. Access is off Highway 111. Travel
      south from Mecca to Parkside Drive, across from the Salton Sea State
      Recreation Area headquarters. Make a left onto Parkside and travel to
      Desertaire. Make a right turn and continue to dirt road and follow
      signs to Preserve. Parking is available on the right side of the road
      before the locked gate. Walk down the road about a mile to the
      maintenance building. There are small ponds to the right and larger
      ponds to the left. Bring plenty of water as there is none available at
      the Preserve. Special thanks to Jeff Cole for his 1999 sightings that
      alerted us to this location. A very hot place in more ways than one!
