Riverside Discovery Center improvement efforts underway

Posted:

Big changes are in the works at the Riverside Discovery Center in Scottsbluff.
 
Construction is underway on the zoo's new 'Heritage Barn' which will house the Riverside Discovery Center's petting-zoo animals.

Despite cool weather recently, Director Anne James says the barn is expected to be done on schedule.

The zoo is also constructing a circular walking path so people don't have to go back-track to exit the zoo.
 
"They interviewed a lot of the public and they said the biggest complaint was that they had to back track," says James.  "So this opens up a brand new area of the zoo that's never been open to the public."
 
James says the new petting-zoo barn is expected to open to the public this summer.
