City of Scottsdale Desert Discovery Center Community Workshops

Wednesday, Nov. 30 

The city of Scottsdale and our nonprofit partner, Desert Discovery Center Scottsdale, Inc., invite you to a public workshop regarding the proposed concept for the Desert Discovery Center. Please join us as we introduce you to our experience designer – Thinc Design – and architect – Swaback Partners. They will be leading you through a workshop that will highlight the new Desert Discovery Center concept.

This workshop is an important step in the current process of determining what the DDC concept would cost to build and operate. Those who register should be prepared to participate in the planning process for the proposed Desert Discovery Center at the Gateway to the McDowell Sonoran Preserve (located at the Preserve perimeter -- Thompson Peak/Bell Road). The Scottsdale City Council has directed further development of the DDC concept at this location.




Community workshops will be held on Wednesday, Nov. 30. at Venue 8600 (8600 E. Anderson Dr., Scottsdale 85255).

Registration is required and a number of time slots are available from 3 to 7 p.m.
