Join + Give

Make a gift today to bring the newest exhibition in Balboa Park to life and allow visitors to experience a slice of wild paradise.

Expedition Baja is set to open on the top floor of The Nat during Memorial Day weekend. You will journey through sky islands, seemingly endless deserts, and habitats teeming with life. Along the way you’ll learn about the rediscovery of an adorable little kangaroo rat, observe desert scorpions and other dune dwellers, and find inspiration in the resilience of California red-legged frogs, hopping back from the brink of extinction.

Join our mission to preserve nature in our binational region. Make a donation today to help bring this exhibition to fruition so that everyone can learn about the Baja California Peninsula, right here in Balboa Park.
