Anza-Borrego Foundation Supports Proposition 3

ABF strongly supports Proposition 3, a statewide water bond that will be on the November ballot. In addition to providing billions of dollars for water conservation projects statewide, Prop 3 would provide specific funds to purchase, fallow and restore agricultural lands in the Borrego Valley, thereby creating a more sustainable groundwater basin for the Park, its visitors and the surrounding community.

Borrego Springs to host a Certified Interpretive Host Train-the-Trainer Course, December 11-14, 2018

Are you looking for training that combines non-formal interpretation skills with customer service? Do you want to train/certify staff and others on behalf of NAI? If so, this course is for you! This course has two different tracks for attendance and certification. One is for those already certified as Certified Interpretive Trainers, and another for those that are not. You will learn how the National Association for Interpretation teaches interpretation, what is expected for Certified Interpretive Host (CIH) certification and will complete two requirements for becoming a CIT. Once you take the class, you can use NAI's curriculum and certify staff and volunteers at your own site or serve as a contractor to sites without a trainer on staff.

Registration is open now through NAI!
