Anza-Borrego Desert Natural History Association : Your Guide to Borrego Springs & Anza-Borrego Desert  

Anza-Borrego is a land of many faces, where the twists and turns of each canyon reveal a unique charm and beauty. From the hot and dry Borrego badlands to the green forested slopes of the Laguna mountains, diverse plants and animals have adapted to many different life zones.  Each zone of Anza-Borrego is defined by the amount of rainfall it receives. The desert is a harsh land, but life is everywhere.

Anza-Borrego State Park is home to the largest desert state park in the United States, offering outstanding desert hiking and camping, biking, desert flowers and plants, birdingreptiles and amphibians, and fascinating geology, along with the warm sunshine of Borrego Springs on a winter's day.  And in the evening, there is the night sky.  Borrego Springs is an international dark sky community. 

There are incredible stories to be told of the ways life has adapted and thrives in Anza-Borrego. Anza-Borrego is also a place of history, with old mines, historic trails, rock art, evidence of the Kumeyaay and Cahuilla Indians who lived here before the first cattlemen arrived, and many places to explore.
