PEEC News:

The Pajarito Environmental Education Center (PEEC) continues its Summer Family Evenings series with a popular program that is back again this year.

Tuesday, June 17, 6:30-8 p.m., families are invited to a StoryWalk at PEEC, to discover the pages of the book Roxaboxen as they stroll.

The StoryWalk® Project is a national program that was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the Vermont Bicycle & Pedestrian Coalition and the Kellogg-Hubbard Library. PEEC adopted this fun and unique concept last summer and brought it back by popular demand again this year.

Event participants will enjoy a summer stroll on the nature trail, while discovering pages of a storybook posted along the way. Kids will enjoy locating the next page of the story and doing fun activities with their families along the way.

The event is free to attend for PEEC members; the cost for non-members is $5 per family, regardless of how many are in the family. No advance registration is required, and families may drop in anytime throughout the program. To learn more about this and other PEEC programs, visit or contact 505.662.0460 or
