Open Space Specialist Eric Peterson will discuss the proposed flow trail for Los Alamos County and the future of the local trail network at the first Nature on Tap presentation of 2017.
Peterson’s talk is 5:30-7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 5 at UnQuarked in Central Park Square.
Nature On Tap is part of a series of conversations about art, history, nature and science.
Peterson oversees the County’s open space and trails systems. He is a graduate of Bowling Green State University in Ohio and has spent the last six years working in the Open Space Industry, which included Bernalillo County and the City of Albuquerque.
Nature on Tap, hosted by the Pajarito Environmental Education Center (PEEC), is part of an informal discussion series started by the Los Alamos Creative District. At each Nature on Tap event, the topic is introduced by a facilitator before being opened up to the group for informal discussion.
PEEC was founded in 2000 to serve the community of Los Alamos. It offers people of all ages a way to enrich their lives by strengthening their connections to our canyons, mesas, mountains, and skies. PEEC operates the Los Alamos Nature Center at 2600 Canyon Road, holds regular programs and events, and hosts a number of interest groups from birding to hiking to butterfly watching. PEEC activities are open to everyone; however, members receive exclusive benefits such as discounts on programs and merchandise. Annual memberships start at $35.
