Nature On Tap At UnQuarked Thursday Jan. 7


Nature On Tap begins at 5:30 p.m. this Thursday, Jan. 7 at UnQuarked Wine Room, 145 Central Park Square in downtown Los Alamos.

The speaker is Park Ranger Jorge Moldonado who will be discussing the National Park Service anniversary. The National Park Service and one of its jewels in New Mexico, Bandelier National Monument, will be celebrating their 100th anniversary in 2016.

Join ranger Jorge Maldonado for a discussion on what it means to celebrate 100 years of preservation, how this major occasion will be commemorated, and how you can participate.

Sponsored by the Los Alamos Creative District and hosted by PEEC – The Nature Center, this series begins each evening with an informal 10-15 minute lecture followed by a lively group discussion. “On Tap” is a way for people to get out and about in the community, learn something new, and meet people with similar interests.

On Tap happens twice a month. The discussions are supported by Bradbury Science Museum, Fuller Lodge Art Center, Los Alamos Historical Society and PEEC.

The Los Alamos Creative District directs a variety of programs that bring people to downtown Los Alamos:

  • Fourth Fridays is a monthly event that offers special programming at Mesa Public Library, Bradbury Science Museum, Los Alamos Historical Society and Fuller Lodge Art Center. Fourth Fridays happens on the fourth Friday of each month and will also promote special offerings from local businesses; and
  • Tuesdays at the Pond, a summer entertainment series, begins its second season June 2 and runs through Aug. 11. It brings a variety of entertainment acts to the Ashley Pond stage in downtown Los Alamos at 7 p.m. every Tuesday.

The mission of the Creative District is to advance the community’s unique creative identity and generate increased economic prosperity by curating and providing local cultural programming that connects a broad range of stakeholders. Learn more about LACD at
