April is just around the corner – time to leave those winter blues behind and get out and explore.
April is also the month to celebrate Earth Day 2013.
This is the 13th year that Pajarito Environmental Education Center has sponsored an Earth Day Festival.
Put April 20 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on your calendar; plan to come and have fun at PEEC, your local nature center at 3540 Orange St.
The theme this year is Dig Nature. Read on to find out why!
PEEC’s portal and lawn will be filled with booths from community groups that enjoy and protect the environment—they dig nature!
There will be plenty of hands-on activities, including the stream table, Walk Like a Wolf, and the grand opening of PEEC’s Mud Pie Kitchen (Dig Nature!)
Everyone’s favorite entertainment group, Clan Tynker, will be back to amaze the crowd (and make them laugh till it hurts) and the wonderful local Hill Stompers will play tunes to get everyone on their feet and dancing.
PEEC will also be showing the 3-D film from the Underground of Enchantment exhibit about Lechiguilla Cave (Dig Nature!), which is being brought to Los Alamos by the Friends of Mesa Public Library.
There will be lots of other information tables, giveaways, and delicious food to buy. On April 21, the Reel Deal will show a free film called “Dirt, The Movie.”
This movie is a witty but incisive look at dirt, what’s in it, how it’s used, and how we must protect it.
On April 14, the Earth Day tabloid in the Los Alamos Monitor will be available to the community. It will include articles about the environment and how to enjoy (dig) nature.
It is a chance for businesses and community groups to advertise their products and services.
If you are interested in being a sponsor of the event, please give us a call. Your logo will go on our website and you will be recognized in the tabloid.
If your business or organization is interested in a booth, please contact us. Booth spaces go fast, so get your bid in early.
