Please describe your project in more detail.

Camp Borrego: a three-day, two-night outdoor education program in Anza-Borrego Desert State Park that promotes awareness of desert ecosystems, introduces students to basic research methods, exposes them to careers in the sciences, provides growth for self-esteem and leadership and allows them to simply stop, wonder and interact with nature. Schools in low-income and park poor communities of San Diego and Imperial Counties are invited to participate for free, allowing their 5th grade students to explore, discover and connect with the natural world they likely have never known.
