"Mongolia and the Anza-Borrego Connection"

Speaker: Diana Lindsay

Abstract: Anza-Borrego Desert State Park is the only park in the California State Park system that has a sister park. The park is located in the desert-steppe region of southeastern Mongolia and is called Ikh Nart Nature Reserve. Diana Lindsay traveled to Mongolia in September 2008 with a delegation from Anza-Borrego representing the State Park and the State of California, carrying documents from the California Park & Recreation Commission and the Governor's office that officially established the sister park relationship with the Mongolian reserve. In addition to formalizing the relationship with the reserve, the delegation toured the Gobi Desert and Mongolian national parks to become better informed about setting up summer hostels to Mongolia through the Anza-Borrego Foundation, which continues to this day. Join Diana at the regular SDAG dinner meeting on Wednesday, July 17, when she will present a PowerPoint program about how this happened and why there is a connection to our own Anza-Borrego area. It will be an armchair adventure where she shares the experience of drinking fermented mare's milk, riding camels over sand dunes, hiking volcanic Vulture Gorge, chasing rare Przewalski horses, visiting the natural history museum in Ulaambaatar, and bouncing cross-country in Russian four-wheel drive vehicles.
