The new Los Alamos Nature Center has a great holiday gift shop, run by Pajarito Environmental Education Center (PEEC).
It is the perfect place to find gifts for the people on your list who like science and nature.
PEEC has made a special effort to stock the Los Alamos Nature Center gift shop with quality, hand-crafted, NM-made, nature-themed gifts including wood boxes, hand-sewn ornaments, educational toys, tea towels, nature-themed art, stuffed animals, jewelry, and other fun and creative gifts.
PEEC and many of our Los Alamos businesses reinforce that shopping local can be fun, and it also helps these businesses do what they do best.
In the case of PEEC, it helps them provide a variety of programs, events, and activities to connect people with nature and enrich lives.
The Pajarito Environmental Education Center (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. To learn more, visit here.
