February  7, 2017 (Borrego Springs)—In April, the Anza-Borrego Foundation will celebrate its 50th anniversary.  We recently interviewed Paige Rogowski, ABF’s executive director, on exciting events coming up to celebrate the occasion. In addition, we interviewed Diana Lindsay, a historian who has written extensively about Anza Borrego Desert State Park. 

They shared some fascinating history with us about our desert region, and the colorful characters from the region’s past, info on the State Park, as well as the Foundation’s successes and continuing efforts to purchase and preserve privately owned lands within the largest state park in California.

Special events include tours and a celebration with live music, craft beer and foods on  April 1st,  as well as five hikes for 50 years,  special classes and more.

For more information on the Anza Borrego Foundation, a timeline of its first 50 years, and information on how to join in the festivities for the 50th anniversary, visit http://theabf.org/.
