VIDEO: Connect to Nature | KCOS’s Only in El Paso Season 4

Only In El Paso is a series of shorts produced, directed and edited by local filmmakers. Cruise around the channel to learn about our culture, community and landscape that makes El Paso so unique.

Heritage Park sits upon an Archaic-period archaeological site, wetlands, and a desert botanical garden. The 4,500-year-old site is one of the oldest villages in the United States. The wetlands are home to many birds, and over 200 species have been spotted there on their seasonal migrations.

The botanical garden features a variety of native plants, and includes a pavilion and a replica of an Archaic period brush hut. The newest component, The Chihuahuan Desert Experience, is a work in progress that will allow visitors to stroll the 900-mile (1,400 km) length of desert over a 17-acre recreation of the plant indigenous life.
