Chihuahuan Desert Virtual Fiesta Recap

When the El Paso Zoo reopens be sure to visit the new Chihuahuan Desert Exhibit.

The 16th Annual Chihuahuan Desert Virtual Fiesta on September 19 was a great success. Special thanks to Heather Rivera and Sarah Murphy for all of their efforts in bringing everyone together on short notice and for some very informative programming.

We hope to see you next year when we will host our 17th annual event. Be sure to follow this blog with your email address to stay informed.

All of the YouTube programs will stay linked to this website and hopefully some of the Zoom programs will be added at a later date.
