The recently completed EPWU Discovery Education Center is located within the El Paso Zoo. The center features interactive exhibits that teach pre-school through elementary school-aged children about the Chihuahuan desert and water resources. Zoo education specialists and volunteers present an assortment of animal encounter programs for school groups and other visitors.
One of the newest exhibits features animals that live in and around desert springs. The facility also comes equipped with a research library, a computer area, and video viewing areas where students can learn about our Chihuahuan desert.
EPWU President and CEO Ed Archuleta, along with Mayor Pro-Tem Emma Acosta and Deputy Chief Administrative Officer Debbie Hamlyn will speak at the ribbon cutting. Tours of the facility and special activities for families will follow immediately.
