Fundraising Effort Underway for Mongolian Sister Park Ranger Attendance
By Lynn Rhodes, ABF Board Member
In anticipation of the upcoming World Ranger Congress conference in 2016, a fundraising effort is underway to assist up to two rangers from Mongolia’s Ikh Nart Nature Reserve to attend. Ikh Nart is the official Sister Park of Anza-Borrego Desert State Park and is California State Parks’ only formal Sister Park.
Cost per Mongolian Ranger to attend is approximately $4,000 including registration, travel, lodging and meals at the conference. ABF formally endorsed our Sister Park several years ago and continues to help support and coordinate official Sister Park activities between the two parks. Our fund raising goal is $8,000. One grant proposal has also been submitted.
Donations may be made either by check or online.
Make checks payable to: Anza-Borrego Foundation, with a memo of WRC
