Regional Ecology and Culture

Cultural tradition and ecological diversity


The Prescott College Kino Bay Center for Cultural and Ecological Studies is located on the edge of the Central Gulf Coast Subdivision of the Sonoran Desert, and on the shores of the Midriff Island region of the Gulf of California. This area represents a transition zone between the temperate and subtropical portions of the Gulf. The surrounding desert, marine, and island ecosystems are incredibly rich, diverse, and unique. The cultural landscape has a long and troubled history that is inextricably interwoven with the natural endowments of the region.
