IMPORTANT MESSAGE from Anza-Borrego Desert State Park
As a reminder to new and experienced visitors to any of our desert parks, although they are beautiful and exciting places, the desert can also be very unpredictable and dangerous especially during the summer months. Simple actions such as taking plenty of water and food and knowing that cell coverage is extremely limited or non-existent can help visitors safely enjoy these iconic landscapes.
The Borrego Village Association endorses The Anza-Borrego Foundation's joint “Leave No Trace Initiative” together with Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, California State Parks and the Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics
