PEEC News:

The community is invited to meet creepy crawly creatures from the Harrell House Bug Museum today at the Los Alamos Nature Center at 2600 Canyon Road.

The fun starts at 6:30 p.m. and is the final event of the Pajarito Environmental Education Center’s Summer Family Evening series.

The Harrell House museum will be at the nature center with a selection of live critters, including tarantulas, scorpions, insects, centipedes, crabs and more. Wade Harrell will be on hand to answer questions and share amazing facts about these unusual animals.

Summer Family Evenings would not be possible without the generous support of Del Norte Credit Union. The programs are free for PEEC members or $5 per family for non-members. No registration is required, and admission can be paid at the door. For more information about this and other PEEC programs, visit, email or call 505.662.0460.
