PEEC News:

The Pajarito Environmental Education Center “Flyometer” is now at 90 percent. It measures how close PEEC is to reaching its goal of raising $1.2 million to fund indoor and outdoor exhibits and a professional planetarium projector for the new Los Alamos County Nature Center.

The new center, which will open next spring, is a public-private partnership between the County and PEEC. The County is spending $4.3 million to build the new facility, while PEEC is raising $1.2 million for the professionally designed exhibits, which will belong to the center.

The dragonfly has become a symbol of the new nature center because some say the building itself resembles a dragonfly. PEEC has adopted the term “Flyometer” for the instrument to mark the progress of its campaign.
