PEEC’s Sue Watts to Speak at Tuesday Rotary Meeting


Board Secretary Sue Watts of the Pajarito Environmental Education Center is the guest speaker for Tuesday’s Rotary Club lunch meeting, which begins at 11:45 a.m. at the Dixie Girl Restaurant on Central Avenue.

At the age of three, Watts ignored her mother’s strict instructions, strayed to the far side of the house and encountered a cow.

Since then, she discovered the joys of being outside, whether it was playing in creeks, climbing trees, hiking, canoeing or hanging out in a hammock.

Receiving her BS in Education, she taught, then raised a family and led a Girl Scout troop. Twenty years of eclectricity followed.

Watts became a national environmental and outdoor trainer for Girl Scouts and their leaders; a manager of council volunteers and trainers; an author; a lay counselor with Stephen Ministries; a facilitation expert and a bookstore manager at a national park.

Her current interests center on getting kids to play outdoors in non-adult-directed activities, writing, and following her grandkids around with a besotted grin on her face.

Watts hasn’t met a cow in years, but to this day prefers trees and wildflowers.

Reservations are required to attend Rotary luncheons as seating is limited. RSVP to Rotary President Linda Hull at 662-7950.
