I will speak of ways I would collect salt where I live (Florida). You should be able to adapt this to work for you.
I would first look at what I am using the salt for. There are many edible plants that grow along inland waterways and beaches that retain salt. Parts of these plants are so salty they can simply be chopped fine and used for seasoning, plus you get the added bonus of the nutrients and flavor they can bring to a dish.
If I needed to collect pure salt, I would collect this from the leaves of plants around inland waterways. Salt is evaporated with water which collects on the leaves of nearby plants. Mangroves where I live are an excellent source for collecting salt that has dried on there leaves.
Hope this helps.
