Red Rock Canyon Field Trip

The Red Rock Canyon Field Trip is taking a hiatus, but we're excited to launch our first interdisciplinary field trip to Anza Borrego!


Join us March 28 through 30 as we explore the rich biodiversity of Anza Borrego, learn about animal tracks, plants, and birds, and roast mashmallows around the campfire. Please check out our fieldtrip site for more information under Activities & Programs. Online registration for Anza Borreo is now available and for any questions please call us at (213) 763-3499.
