January 28, 2009 Prime Wildflower Habitat Preserved For The People Of California An Visitors Anza-Borrego Desert State Park Receives Donation Of 160 Acres Borrego Springs, CA - One- hundred sixty acres" of prime wildflower land were donated to Anza-Borrego Foundation and Institute (ABFI) by Steven S. Kay, of Indian Wells, for inclusion in world-renowned Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, The property, two 80-acre parcels, is north of Henderson Canyon Road and west of Peg Leg monument. Mr. Kay's generous gift connects existing parklands and land already acquired by ABFI on behalf of Anza-Borrego Desert State Park. Anza-Borrego Desert State Park (ABDSP) has dramatic spring wildflower displays that attract visitors from all over the world. During prolific wildflower seasons, large numbers of tourists flock to the sandy outwash of Coyote Canyon to view the acres of sand covered with verbena, dune evening primrose and desert sunflowers. "Donations like Steven Kay's protect priceless resources and ensure future generations can enjoy the same beauty we see today. We are extremely grateful for the generous gift he has given ABFI, the people of California, and every Anza-BorregO Desert State Park visitor," said ABFI president Ray Mouton. ABFI paid for all closing costs on the property which was appraised at $2,500 an acre for a total of $400,000. Delores Lukina, ABFI's vice president for acquisitions, coordinated the donation with real estate broker Jean Anderson of Borrego Vistas Realty. Lukina lives in La Quinta, but devotes much of her time to helping ABFI acquire land for ABDSP. Anza-Borrego Desert State Park Superintendent Mark Jorgensen stated, "The wildflower area is enjoyed by thousands of people every spring. The donated land is part of the finest wildflower areas in Borrego Valley and it's crucial we get as much of it preserved as possible. This generous donation is greatly appreciated by the State Park and the people of California." Anza-Borrego Fou ndation and Institute, a non-profit, public benefit organization, has acquired more than 43,000 acres for ABDSP since 1967. When Anza-Borrego Desert State Park was formed, private parcels were scattered within its borders - a daunting 68,000 acres owned by more than 1,700 individuals. Since the first five-acre gift of land, ABFI has worked to conserve land in and around the Park. Anza-Borrego Desert State Park is California's largest State Park and is the largest State Park in the contiguous United States with more than 640,000 acres. It extends into three counties: San Diego, Imperial and Riverside. From just above sea level to more than 6,000 feet, the Park has unique and diverse landscapes and environments, and provides habitat for many endangered and rare species including Peninsular bighorn sheep, least Bell's vireo, Borrego bedstraw and Arizona Carlowrightia. Anza-Borrego Desert State ParkO is the first State Park to develop a sister park relationship across the world. Anza-Borrego Desert State Park and Ikh Nart Nature Reserve in Mongolia were officially recognized as sister parks in September of 2008. The mission of Anza-Borrego Foundation and Institute (ABFI) is to promote conservation in Anza- Borrego Desert State Park and the surrounding ecological region through land acquisition, education, interpretation and scientific studies. ABFI, founded in 1967, is a non-profit educational organization which believesconservation of Anza- Borrego Desert State Park is reached through educating Park visitors and others about Anza- Borrego Desert State Park, California's largest State Park. Anza-Borrego Foundation also operates Anza-Borrego Institute, a field school which provides high quality, in-depth educational courses to over 1,300 visitors each year. ABFI has a growing member/donor program with approximately 1,400 members. To generate funds to support Park programs and projects, ABFI sells an extensive selection of educational materials to visitors in Anza-Borrego Desert State Park's Visitor Center and through ABFrs website (www. theABF.org).
