Happy fall everyone!

For the first class in ABF’s new program series, Anza-Borrego: In Focus, Mark Jorgensen will be giving a lecture on our Park’s “Magnificent Bighorn Sheep” this Friday, October 30 at 7:30 pm at the Steele/Burnand Anza-Borrego Desert Research Center. The fee is $5 at the door. We hope you’ll join us for the lecture on Friday to learn from one of the Park’s greatest sheep experts! (Unfortunately, the field class on Saturday is already full.) Details below and flyer attached.

The Majestic Desert Bighorn Sheep of Anza-Borrego
Underwritten in memory of Fran Medema

October 30-31, 2015
Instructor: Mark C. Jorgensen, desert bighorn sheep researcher and retired Park Superintendent

Mark will provide a lively presentation about Anza-Borrego's iconic animal and its wilderness habitat. The program will highlight the magnificent bighorn's adaptations to survive in some of the harshest habitats in North America and the efforts underway to restore and maintain populations of desert bighorn not only in Anza-Borrego, but throughout the Southwest and northern Mexico. Jorgensen's talk will be beautifully illustrated with photographs by Jeff Young featuring rare behavior, massive rams in ritualized combat, and ewes nurturing their newborn lambs.
