We love our desert and are so excited about how more and more people in El Paso are working together to conserve the natural world around us. On June 18, 2019 the Chihuahuan Desert Education Coalition Board of Directors approved a new plan to increase the conservation impact of our organization – FREE MEMBERSHIP. That’s right, FREE MEMBERSHIP. We are also working on a new list of projects that anyone with the interest can be involved in support of our efforts. In the coming years we want to engage thousands of people in support of our mission in serving as a resource on information about the Chihuahuan Desert, encouraging lifelong learning about the Chihuahuan Desert and collaborating efforts among public educators, the public and CDEC.
