Join the Chihuahuan Desert Nature Club - membership is free!

An important goal of the Chihuahuan Desert Education Coalition is to encourage people to get outside and visit our desert. Connecting with the outdoors helps people appreciate and better understand how we all fit into the natural world. Experiencing this part of the ecosystem also helps to decrease the negative effects of nature deficit disorder. People, especially children, are spending less time outdoors, resulting in a wide range of physical, mental health and behavioural problems.

 

The new Chihuahuan Desert Nature Club is designed to help people connect with outdoor recreation areas including parks, wildlife refuges and the El Paso Zoo. Anyone can qualify for a free Chihuahuan Desert Club sticker by visiting three of the seven Chihuahuan Desert hotspots listed on the new Nature Club flyer and or by signing up to get on our email list.

Download the two sided flyer and encourage your family, friends and neighbors to get outside and connect with our Chihuahuan Desert.

Volunteers needed to help tell others about conservation efforts in the Chihuahuan Desert

An important goal of the Chihuahuan Desert Education Coalition is to encourage people tell others about all the ways we can connect with and learn about the Chihuahuan Desert. Volunteers are needed throughout the year to staff information booths at city wide events. If you would like to be a CDEC volunteer and help spread the word contact CDEC Board of Directors chair Rick LoBello at 915-217-4233 or by email at lobellorl@elpasotexas.gov. Volunteers are especially needed during the month of April when the City sponsors Earth Month.

Help our community save water and create new wildlife habitats - certify your backyard habitat

-Easy as 1,2,3 to register your yard at no cost to you as a Chihuahuan Desert Education Coalition Certified Habitat!

Help spread the news about our desert! The Chihuahuan Desert Education Coalition encourages residents living anywhere in the Chihuahuan Desert to landscape with native plants and create backyard habitats that will attract birds, butterflies and other wildlife. These mini habitats when connected with other natural areas in the neighborhood can make a real impact in helping wildlife such as birds needing trees to build their nests and butterflies needing nectar from flowers. Backyard habitats landscaped with native plants from our local Chihuahuan Desert also help the community conserve drinking water. Examples of drought tolerant plants include desert willow, yellow bells, acacia, sotol, ocotillo, and wooly butterfly bush.
