June 16, 2012 (Anza-Borrego) -- Over the Fourth of July weekend, volunteers will head into Anza-Borrego Desert State Park to participate in the annual bighorn sheep count. If you can brave the heat, you’re invited to be part of this citizen science in action to help count this endangered population of desert bighorn sheep.
 

A mandatory training for new volunteers will take place on June 16, 2012. If you are interested in this opportunity, call (760) 767-5311 or email Ranger Steve Bier to get more information.

 In an earlier story, ECM

 In an earlier story, ECM reported that "up to 10 bighorn ewes and lambs may be "taken" or killed under the project approval terms for the Ocotillo wind farm project." Just how much more egregious is this allowance given their endangered status, and the laborious effort to cultivate the herds and bring them back?!
