PEEC News:
Sunday, Oct. 22, the Pajarito Environmental Education Center offers a guided tour of the Leonora Curtin Wetland Preserve south of Santa Fe. The tour is free and will be led by Natali Steinberg who has been a docent at the Leonora Curtin Wetland Preserve for thirteen years. 
Advance registration is required at
The Santa Fe Botanical Garden’s Leonora Curtin Wetland is a 35-acre preserve that includes a rare natural cienega (marsh in Spanish). It hosts a bountiful diversity of plants and wildlife, especially birds. There are enormous, 100-year-old cottonwood trees and a lovely pond full of huge bull frogs. A short nature trail winds through an open meadow to the pond. At this time of year, the cottonwoods are a bright golden reflection in the pond – a photographer’s delight. The tour is suitable for adults and children, and will last from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m., including driving to and from the site.
