PEEC News:
Pajarito Environmental Education Center (PEEC) is helping kids explore geology this summer by hosting a Pebble Pups program for youth ages 5 to 9.
This eight-week program helps kids embark on a journey to learn about rocks, fossils, and local geology through active games and activities with Patrick Rowe of the Los Alamos Geological Society and Kate Cleveland, an experienced PEEC educator.
From 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m., June 7 Pebble Pups will meet on Tuesdays. This program is part of the Future Rockhounds of America badge program, and
accomplishments at each meeting will help kids earn badges to show their personal achievement. This engaging geology program will conclude on Tuesday, August 2.
The Pebble Pups program also includes three Saturday field trips that correlate with earth science topics covered at the Tuesday meetings. Field trips are open to the whole family as well as the public.
Registration is now open and space is limited. The eight-week Pebble Pups program costs $150. PEEC members can register at a discounted rate of $120. To learn more visit here or call (505).662.0460.
