Riverside Discovery Center improvement efforts underway


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.
