Anza Borrego Desert State Park is rich with cultural resources, an Archaeologist’s dream! And the dream came true for Robin Connors, who was hired a year ago as the District’s Archaeologist. Join us for a look back at her first year, a time filled with new challenges.

It began last winter when Robin took the lead in a major effort to restore a significant cultural site which had been looted for many years. Gathering together a team of staff and volunteers, she skillfully directed the work which resulted in the restoration of a treasured site. 

So it’s been a very busy year in the life of an archaeologist whose task it is to protect over 700,000 acres of cultural resources, there is enough to last a lifetime. Come find out just what happens when you get to live your dream…
