White Water Preserve
The Whitewater Conservancy protects the Whitewater River and Canyon. It is a climate microcosm. For example, the rainfall is approx 4x higher than on the nearby Coachella Valley floor. Just the other day we got .43 inches in Palm Springs and 2 miles away, the Preserve got 1.57 inches. The hills surrounding the canyon are covered in brittle bush and it is wall to wall yellow in the spring.
