PEEC News:

New Mexico has some beautiful slot canyons to explore, and outdoorsman Doug Scott knows how to find them. Scott will return to the Nature Center at 7 p.m. today, June 2, with an all-new presentation about the slot canyons of New Mexico.

Scott has documented more than 100 slot canyons in New Mexico, and in this talk he’ll show photographs of many of them and talk about where and how to find them. 

Scott has been exploring New Mexico since he was a young child. He started the Taos Mountain Outfitters in 1972 and was a commercial whitewater rafting guide and ski touring guide for many years, besides being a successful artist. 

This talk is free, and no advance registration is required.
