The Anza-Borrego Foundation and Institute (ABFI) has constructed a new "straw bale building"  that is the home of the Begole Archaeological Research Center. The Begole Center is located at the entrance to the Colorado Desert District headquarters,  just a short distance from the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park Visitor Center in Borrego Springs, California. 

The Center houses the extensive collections of artifacts from Cuyamaca Rancho and Anza-Borrego Desert State Parks as well as Palomar Mountain State Park and the Picacho State Recreation Area. It provides sorely needed storage space, office space, and laboratory work space for park archaeologists, visiting scientists and park volunteers.
