Join us for our third annual Colorado Desert Cultural Heritage Symposium at the Steele/Burnand Anza-Borrego Desert Research Center. This three-day educational event promotes anthropological research and cultural heritage to raise public awareness through speakers, research posters and an appreciation for diversity.
Want to join fellow adventurers for a vigorous bike ride, delve into a six-week course on archaeology, soak up a lecture on paleontology, or pair up your passions for exploring the desert and drinking beer on one of our Hikes & Hops events? Those are just a few of the exciting educational and social programs that ABF offers in the Anza-Borrego region throughout fall, winter and spring.
