Yesterday, President Obama was at Lake Tahoe, speaking at an annual summit on conservation efforts for the lake.
He talked about how protecting natural resources is a key part of the fight against the effects of global warming -- and an important fight for the local economy.
During his remarks, President Obama briefly mentioned ANOTHER big lake that's in trouble: the Salton Sea.
The body of water in the Coachella Valley is the largest lake in California.
And, thanks to the drought, it's been in major danger of disappearing for years.
Yesterday, White House announced efforts to fund preservation efforts at the Salton Sea.
To help us break down the plan, Take Two's A Martinez was joined by Sammy Roth, who's been covering this for the Desert Sun.
