PEEC News:
 
Starting at 6 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 13 is Family Night at Los Alamos Nature Center. Bandelier biologists will lead activities to simulate how they catch, measure, band, and release birds in the field.
 
Don’t worry, no real birds will be inconvenienced. Kids will also have the chance to make their own bird bands. Family Nights at the Nature Center are free thanks to generous sponsorship by the Kiwanis Club of Los Alamos.
 
Every Tuesday, the nature center is open for exploring the exhibits until 8 p.m.
 
Biologists Sarah Milligan, who runs the bird banding program at Bandelier, and Diana Vazquez Balbuena, an international intern from Mexico, will answer questions and help children discover how scientists study migratory birds.
