Join a ranger for a presentation about the endangered Peninsular bighorn sheep that call Agua Caliente home. View a variety of real skulls and glimpse rare images and videos of the local herd in action. Learn anatomy, traits, and fun facts that help make the bighorn worthy enough to be a park logo and namesake of the Borrego area. Meet at the clubhouse.
