Help prevent and stop mosquitoes from breeding! Residents are reminded that mosquito bites can be deadly.

Mosquitoes breed by laying eggs in and near standing water. Make sure to take these steps to keep you and your loved ones safe!
- Drain items that hold standing water like buckets, potted plant saucers, birdbaths, fountains, rain gutters, kiddie pools, toys and wagons, ponds, open trash bins, neglected pools, old tires - anywhere water can gather.
- Make sure to empty, clean and refill dog water bowls with fresh water DAILY!
- Treat water that cannot be drained with Mosquito Dunks or similar products which are available at home and garden centers.

As little as one teaspoon or bottle cap of water standing for more than one week is enough for mosquitoes to breed and multiply!

To report mosquito breeding and standing water call 311. For more information visit www.EPHealth.com under the Be Climate Ready tab.

Congratulations Ms. Marin

We are pleased to announce the appointment of Erica Marin as the new Director of the El Paso Museum of History.

Marin is the first El Paso native and Latina to be appointed as a director of the El Paso Museum of History. She has been with the City of El Paso for nearly three years and recently served as curator of the museum. Marin begins her new role as El Paso Museum of History Director immediately.

“After interviewing multiple candidates for the leadership position, Erica Marin stood out as the best candidate to lead the El Paso Museum of History,” said Cultural Affairs and Recreation Managing Director Ben Fyffe. “Her years of experience, leadership and expertise, along with her love and passion for our city will enhance programming and exhibits at the Museum of History.”

During her time at the museum, Marin has been a critical driver in developing community-driven exhibitions that celebrate cultural and civic contributions by more diverse communities. The approach, which resulted in exhibitions like “Neighborhoods & Shared Memories: Sunset Heights” and “Low & Slow: Lowrider Culture on the Border” has correlated in an increase of attendance at the museum of more than 233 percent during the last decade.

Marin holds a bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts/Museum Conservation from New Mexico State University and a Master’s in Public History from The University of Texas at El Paso - UTEP. She is also a National Association of Latino Arts and Cultures (NALAC) Leadership Institute Fellow.

Before joining the El Paso Museum of History, Erica Marin served as an Exhibits Curator for Las Cruces Museums, and an independent curator for Purple Gallery in El Paso. She is also active in the community as an artist, focusing her creative work primarily on identity and memory.
