Anza-Borrego Foundation has recently kicked off a brand new type of partnership with Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, and it’s a partnership that is truly exciting. We’re calling it the Invasive Plant Response Team, and the idea is to have an action-oriented group of volunteers to be on call and ready to respond when the Park has a need for a crew of volunteers to help the native plant communities surpass the growing threat of invasive plants.
The first time I experienced the monsoon rains here in Anza-Borrego, people started talking about the fairy shrimp. I didn’t think much of it, assuming this was just a strange name for a desert creature. Which, to be honest, is true.

I’m sitting in the comfort of my air-conditioned office here in “downtown” Borrego Springs, happy I’m not outside in temps that have continually hit just over 100F for the last week or so. And while sitting here, I’m thinking that I’m just a little bit sad I’m not outside counting sheep today. Sound crazy? Maybe.
UPDATE! Thanks to all of YOU, ABF was awarded 2nd Place and $10,000 of support for Camp Borrego next year.
