Please join us at The Centennial Museum and Chihuahuan Desert Gardens at the corner of University Avenue and Wiggins Road for Chihuahuan Desert Garden Tour.
In conjunction with the exhibits "Vanishing Ice: Alpine and Polar Landscapes 1775-2012" and "Water, Water Everywhere: Paean to a Vanishing Resource," the Centennial Museum and the El Paso Museum of Art invite you to join Garden Curator John White as he leads you through the more than 800 species of native plants that make up the Chihuahuan Desert Gardens. Mr. White will help you to consider the connections between the role of water in the local desert and its connection to the larger context of the polar deserts. He will also discuss how gardening with native plants can promote much-needed water conservation in our region.
