The Riverside Discovery Center in Scottsbluff is adding a new facility, with space for a petting zoo and classroom area.
The center has already broken ground on the Heritage Barn project. The Riverside Discovery Center says it will include six pens for petting animals and the classroom will be filled with around 30 mounts from its Wildlife World exhibit.
The 2,700 square foot facility will be located on the southeast end of the center, where it will be part of a new pathway aimed at improving traffic flow.
The new facility is scheduled to open this spring. It first of three projects the center has planned; other plans include a new entrance building.
