Meet Nancy Cohee Veteran Tour Guide Nancy Cohee she has been a full-time resident of the Coachella Valley for over 30, and a tour guide for 25 years, establishing Tallgrass tours in 2002 to offer custom guided hiking, sightseeing tours seminars and group presentations throughout the Greater Palm Springs. My goal is to enjoy the desert and share the history and beauty with others. To inform and entertain and to bring awareness of the little-known east end of the Coachella Valley, one of my passion is our agriculture industry and all that we grow in this dry desert and another is the importance of the Salton Sea to our migratory birds and our desert environment.”
