The community is invited 2-4 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 14 for the 12 annual PEECnic at the Pajarito Environmental Education Center.
The event is PEEC’s yearly meeting for members and friends with activities, talks and cider filling the air.
PEEC traditionally holds its annual meeting in the fall, when Bandelier’s Park Flight ornithologist interns are still in town, to learn about the birds they’ve found across the Americas.
The PEECnic features illustrated talks by the interns, kids’ activities and light refreshments.
It’s the perfect place to catch up with other PEEC members and make new friends.
This year, kids will make a scarecrow to enter in the MainStreet Scarecrow Contest, and there will be a cider press with plenty of apples to turn into juice.
Finally, PEEC members will vote on the board of directors for the coming year.
As a special thank-you to the community for encouraging the Los Alamos County Council to vote for a new nature center for Los Alamos, there will be a slide show of PEEC’s history.
Council received hundreds of letters and emails from community members in support of the nature center, and PEEC is incredibly grateful for this overwhelming support.
The PEECnic is free and open to all, whether or not they are PEEC members. For more information, visit www.PajaritoEEC.org, call 662-0460, or e-mail Programs@PajaritoEEC.org.
