This Saturday! We invite the community to visit with our seed lab staff and learn about the exciting work we're doing with regional seed banking.

We hope to see you there
There are many exciting things growing at Borderlands! One of them is the summer 2018 field school, which is an immersive practical course to inspire the next generation of environmental leaders in the Sky Islands. We are now accepting applications for participation. Information on classes, scholarships, and more can be found here: http://www.borderlandsinstitute.org/field-school.html
Our friends at the Sierra Club in the Lower Rio Grande Valley, TX, are extending an invitation to groups and individuals across the country to participate in a rally and concert in the field next to the entrance of Santa Ana National Wildlife Refuge on Saturday, January 27 from 11 am to 2 pm. The goal is to raise awareness about the impacts a border wall would have in this unique region. Support and share as you are able!
