Next Meeting Anza-Borrego

The next Congress of History meeting will be at the Anza-Borrego Desert Natural History Association ( on Saturday, January 21, 2023 at 10:00 a.m. The nonprofit ABDNDA (pronounced “ABNA”) was founded in 1971 to enhance the understanding, appreciation, and enjoyment of the Anza-Borrego desert and surrounding area. Thank you to Reena Deutsch for arranging this location for us!

Meeting location: 

Anza-Borrego Desert Natural History Association (ABDNHA)

652 Palm Canyon Drive

Borrego Springs, CA 92004

Travel time from central San Diego (Mission Valley area) can be two hours, but is well worth the drive. It’s great to carpool with friends.

We will meet in the Desert Nature Center. It will be on the north side of the road. 

There is free parking on the east side, plus free street parking if that is filled.

Our meeting will be in the Activity Room. There will be light refreshments. After the meeting we’ll have a short tour of ABDNHA and then we can gather to have lunch locally.

Right now the weather is expected to be clear (no rain predicted for Saturday) and it’s a wonderful time to see the desert!

Please let Chair Chris Milnes know if you will be joining us. We look forward to seeing you and discussing the upcoming history conference, “Come One, Come All! Community Events that Bind Us Together” to be held February 24 and 25, 2023, in person at Portuguese Hall, Point Loma, San Diego, CA. Conference details will be posted soon. This will be our first in-person conference since 2019 due to the pandemic. All those who paid for the 2020 conference are invited to (finally) attend, and new guests are welcome!
