CEDO News Archives 2018-05-19T14:55:12+00:00

CEDO News: A Journal of the Northern Gulf of California and Surrounding Sonoran Desert was first published in 1987 and continued through 2004. This was a bilingual journal informing the public about natural history and environmental issues in the region. We have limited number of back issues available. As we are able, we will be uploading past issues, accessible at this page.  Links below will take you to those issues.

Beginning in 2004, CEDO members received a different publication called “CEDO Currents – a publication of CEDO for our members and friends.”  In 2006 we expanded our one-sheet eco-adventures mailer to give CEDO members a more complete description of CEDO’s work, while teaching about local environments and species. This new publication has both an English and Spanish version. Again, some back issues of this publication are available upon request.

In 2008, CEDO began publishing an E-Newsletter, which eventually became a monthly bulletin of selected events and information.  All of these E-Newsletters can be found below. Effective January, 2011, our E-Newsletters go out to members and colleagues via the E-News subscription service, Constant Contact.  We also archive our E-Newsletters on this page.  Review our past newsletters below. Sign up to receive current issues of our E-News on the bottom right of this page!
