What is ABDNHA?  View Membership Info: Make the desert a part of your life!
The Anza-Borrego Desert Natural History Association (ABDNHA) is a community based non-profit 501(c)3 educational organization, located in Borrego Springs, California.

Anza-Borrego is a land of many faces, where the twists and turns of each canyon reveal a unique charm and beauty. From the colorful Borrego badlands east of Borrego Springs to the forested slopes of the Laguna mountains, diverse plants and animals have adapted to many different life zones.   The desert is a harsh land, but life is everywhere.

Anza-Borrego Desert 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.
