Welcome to the Intercultural Center for the Study of Deserts and Oceans.

Join us to explore, understand, and protect the natural resources and cultures of the Sonoran Desert and Sea of Cortez. Our mission is to bring together people, knowledge and solutions for vibrant communities AND resilient ecosystems, in the northern Gulf of California and beyond.

By promoting environmental awareness, disseminating knowledge and encouraging civic participation, CEDO is a fundamental force driving civic dialogue and transparent decision-making. CEDO has been the promoter of a vision:  the vision of an open, participatory society  consciously building its own future.

High tides in the Upper Gulf of California allow naturalist enthusiasts to access otherwise inaccessible estuary channels that fan out into the salt marsh. It is in these channels where a plethora of species can be observed; fiddler crabs, flounder, egrets, willets, long billed curlews, and herons along with many other migratory bird species and halophyte plants use these hypersaline ecosystems as refuge, hatcheries, nurseries, feeding and breeding grounds as well as resting places for migrating bird species.

Vive la experiencia de remar un kayak a través de los tranquilos canales de agua salada de uno de los esteros de Puerto Peñasco y observa a las aves de la región mientras un guía naturalista  te explica acerca de ecología y la importancia de estos ecosistemas.
