Sheffield Education Center to get a redo

Tuesday, November 19, 2019 by Tai Moses

The Splash! Exhibit at the Beverly S. Sheffield Education Center is due for a face-lift and the parks department wants the community’s input. PARD invites community members to come a public meeting to share their ideas for revitalizing the education center, which is part of the Barton Springs Bathhouse. Tens of thousands of locals and out-of-towners alike have been coming to the education center every year since 2000 to learn about the habits and habitat of the endangered Austin blind salamander and the Barton Springs salamander. The first community engagement meeting will be held on Dec. 5, 5:30-7:30 p.m., Barton Springs Bathhouse Rotunda, 2201 William Barton Drive.
