Partnerships are Everything

Sustainable partnerships are everything. The Desert Museum and the Colorado Desert Archaeology Society are partnering for several volunteer days to give a big boost to the re-curation of our archaeology colleciton. Affiliated with the Colorado Desert District California State Parks, the Colorado Desert Archaeology Society normally provides volunteer curation services to Anzo-Borrego State Park. They understand the research potential of our collection and its value as a complemetary collection to the artifacts housed at the curation facility at Anzo-Borrego, and are now also providing curation volunteers to help us with our Collections Inventory.

Twice a month they will drive from all around Southern California to help us curate in Ocotillo. Today, we had 8 volunteers who curated over 600 artifacts. Some people drove two hours to arrive this morning. They are a wonderful group to work with and we are so grateful for their help as we work to care for the collections.
