Thank You! San Diego County Employees' Charitable Organization (SDCECO)
Thank You! San Diego County Employees' Charitable Organization (SDCECO) for approving the Borrego Village Association’s grant request to help us purchase hiking shoes for the Borrego Springs High School students enrolled in our Interpretation Course in partnership with the National Association for Interpretation (NAI). Each student who successfully completes this for credit course elective acquires important skills in personal and environmental interpretation and are certified as Interpretive Hosts and Guides by globally recognized NAI. The course involves hiking and developing guiding and interpretive skills in Anza-Borrego Desert State Park. The hiking shoes not only allow them to access the backcountry for the course but, hopefully, inspires them to make outdoor recreation part of their on-going lifestyle.
