Anza-Borrego Foundation (ABF) is the official nonprofit partner of Anza-Borrego Desert State Park. We provide financial support for Park programs, acquire land for conservation in and around the Park, educate the public about the Park’s resources and support research relevant to our region. Our small, dedicated staff — together with the board and volunteers — works hard to protect this desert we love. We also want others to treasure what Anza-Borrego Desert State Park has to offer, so we host education programs year-round for both youth and adults. Whether it’s a guided hike, an archaeology lecture or an environmental education program for socioeconomically disadvantaged students, we believe conservation of the Park is reached by cultivating an understanding for and appreciation of this land and its valuable resources.
Anza-Borrego Desert State Park is the largest state park in California. Five hundred miles of dirt roads, 12 wilderness areas and many miles of hiking trails provide visitors with an unparalleled opportunity to experience the wonders of the California Desert. The park is named for Spanish explorer Juan Bautista de Anza and the Spanish word borrego, or bighorn sheep. The park features washes, wildflowers, palm groves, cacti and sweeping vistas. Visitors may also have the chance to see roadrunners, golden eagles, kit foxes, mule deer and bighorn sheep as well as iguanas, chuckwallas and the red diamond rattlesnake. Listening devices for the hearing impaired are available in the visitor center.
