PEEC News:

Doug Scott has been exploring and writing about the waterfalls of New Mexico for decades. Of special interest is that a new 80-foot high waterfall is being formed this year, for which Scott is documenting the formation and the fact that it will continue to grow for years to come.

Scott will share photos and observations of these waterfalls in a slideshow and presentation at 7 p.m. Thursday, April 10 at the Pajarito Environmental Education Center (PEEC).

There are hundreds of high, beautiful, perennial-flowing waterfalls in the Land of Enchantment, yet very few people know this. Attendees of Scott’s talks are always greatly inspired to become “waterfall-lovers” and begin “waterfalling” immediately.

At this event, Scott will also sign all four of his outdoor books for those interested: Taos Waterfalls, Taos Mountains, New Mexico Waterfalls and New Mexico Waterfall Handbook.  

At 20 years of age, Scott was the first commercial whitewater river outfitter in New Mexico in 1972. Scott also was the founder of Taos Mountain Outfitters in 1972. He has been a New Mexico guide and outdoor enthusiast since moving here in 1957.

The program is free to attend, and no advance registration is required.
