PEEC News:

When Geologist Patrick Rowe leads a trip for PEEC, it always fills up with a waiting list equally as long. So this time, PEEC decided to bring Rowe to the PEEC nature center, to give everyone a chance to learn from Rowe’s extensive knowledge about geology.

In the free program at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 28, Rowe will share and discuss samples from his amazing rock collection, making special note of what can be found in northern New Mexico. This event will be a great introduction to local geology, or a refresher for those already knowledgeable about the subject.

This program is free, and no advance registration is required. To learn more about this and other PEEC programs, visit, email or call 505.662.0460.
