Since 2010, the John Bunker Sands Wetland Center has been the forerunner in educating over 25,000 students and 3,000 adults about the importance of water, wetland and wildlife conservation. Now we have a new five-year vision: Doubling our visitor capacity and increasing amenities by 2020 so even more North Texas students and families can enjoy this jewel of the Trinity River.
Over a yearlong process, Halff Associates, Inc., helped us identify a new vision and a plan for achieving it. As part of its process, Halff undertook a comprehensive operational and market analysis aimed at making the best use of our education center. The initial proposed physical improvements include adding sustainable classrooms and social gathering space to increase the number of students we can host.
Many of you participated in this extensive process. Our new strategic vision reflects your commitment to our future, and we thank you for your unceasing dedication to what we do here at the Wetland Center.
Thank you to everyone that participated in this yearlong process.
