Youth ages 6 to 10 will love exploring geology at the Los Alamos Nature Center in the Pebble Pups program, organized by the Pajarito Environmental Education Center (PEEC).
This program helps kids embark on a journey to learn about rocks, fossils, and local geology through active games and activities with Patrick Rowe of the Los Alamos Geological Society Denise Matthews, an experienced Pajarito Environmental Center (PEEC) Educator. The Pebble Pups school-year program meets one Tuesday a month and is perfect for new or returning Pebble Pups members.
Pebble Pups program starts Sept. 19 and runs through May 15. This engaging geology program meets on the third Tuesday of each month from 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m., except December. This program is part of the Future Rockhounds of America badge program, and accomplishments at each meeting will help kids earn badges to show their personal achievement.
The Pebble Pups program also includes Saturday field trips that correlate with earth science topics covered at the Tuesday meetings. Field trips are open to the whole family as well as the public and will be announced as they approach.
Registration is now open and space is limited. The school-year Pebble Pups program costs $190. PEEC members can register at a discounted rate of $160. To learn more visit peecnature.org/events or call (505).662.0460.
