The Ever-Changing Land of Enchantment is this year's Earth Day theme. PEEC's Earth Day logo connects people to the land they live in and its changes over the past 100 years since New Mexico's Centennial. It also reminds people that they must live gently on this beautiful and vulnerable land. Photo by Carol A. Clark/ladailypost.com

The Earth Day Festival is PEEC's biggest event of the year. The festival featured booths and displays where community groups showed their earth-friendly products and practices, and provided information about the environment on the Pajarito Plateau. New to the festival this year, Wise Fool performed with giant puppets. Photo by Carol A. Clark/ladailypost.com
