The Adolfo Foundation Plans to Develop and Alternative Energy Science Camp on Property near the Painted Gorge in Imperial County
The 10 acre site will become an alternative energy and science camp.
With the hope that it will one day
become the home to a science
camp for teenagers, the Foundation
has accepted the donation of a 10
acre site near the Painted Gorge in
western Imperal County near the
of Ocotillo, CA.
The Painted Gorge is a narrow
canyon located in the Coyote
Mountains. The walls of the canyon are colored by the weathering of rocks containing copper, sulfur and iron deposits. The upper gorge contains ancient marine coral reefs with fossilized marine life. Students who attend the camp will study the unique geology of
the area and of all of California. Plans will also be maded for programs in Astronomy, Chemisty, and Biology and recreational facilities.
