PEEC News:

Are you interested in getting started with your very own trail camera or perhaps you’re looking to take your hobby up a notch? 

Well, here’s your chance – critter cam experts will share their tips and techniques during a free talk at 7 p.m. Thursday, July 25 at PEEC.

Let’s face it. Wildlife is elusive to say the least. Even in Los Alamos, where forested highlands and steep canyons provide many various habitats for critters to live close by, many of us rarely see the animals that share our neighborhoods. With a simple motion-activated camera setup, you can record, study, and enjoy these animals at your convenience without disturbing them. During this class, participants will learn how to operate the PEEC trail camera, which will be available for members to borrow and install at their own homes.

The class will be led by Dave Yeamans, PEEC member and trail camera operator, and Hari Viswanathan, a wildlife photographer who brings a professional approach to the everyday equipment available through PEEC. This is the perfect chance to learn all about trail cameras and see examples of wildlife captured in photos and videos.

This program is free and open to the public. No registration is required. PEEC members may rent the trail camera for two weeks at a time ($200 deposit and $10 per week rental charge).
