Enhancing Visitor Experience at the Chihuahuan Desert Gardens

The Chihuahuan Desert Gardens are a hidden gem at UTEP. They are a place for the community to relax, study, and learn about native plants. However, the gardens currently lack Wi-Fi access that would enhance visitors' ability to fully use the space. 

With your support, the Chihuahuan Desert Gardens will be able to:

  • Install Wi-Fi throughout the gardens to improve the visitor experience
  • Provide visitors with easy access to the newly redesigned website for the gardens, which will help visitors identify plants and learn more about them
  • Create an environment in which UTEP faculty and staff can comfortably spend time with access to internet

Thank you for your support!
