The Pajarito Environmental Education Center is hosting its annual membership appreciation event, PEEC-nic, 1-3 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 20 at the Los Alamos Nature Center.
This event is open to the public, with special treats for PEEC members. There will be a variety of activities going on at the nature center for all ages including hands-on educational activities from PEEC’s educators, a chance to meet the nature center’s resident animals, delicious desserts and ice cream making at PEEC-nic. Also a bird expert will be in the wildlife observation room throughout the event and at 1:30 p.m., there will be a guided hike into the canyon.
In addition to these festivities, PEEC members will receive a special gift (while supplies last).
Nonmembers can sign up to join and those who do so during PEEC-nic will receive one extra month of membership. Those who bring a friend to PEEC-nic who has never been to the nature center will receive, along with the friend, a free planetarium voucher or a 10 percent discount coupon for the gift shop.
PEEC’s weekly trail run and yoga session will also be free for all PEEC members to celebrate PEEC-nic. This is a great opportunity to try out these programs, both of which are led by PEEC’s Visitor Services Manager Christa Tyson. The trail run starts at 10:30 a.m. and yoga begins at 11:45 a.m. every Sunday.
