PEEC News:

Summer break is upon us, and that means that the Pajarito Environmental Education Center (PEEC) is getting ready to start up its Summer Family Evenings again. The Summer Family Evenings take place 6:30-8 p.m. every Tuesday throughout June and July.

Summer Family Evenings are always free to attend for PEEC members; the cost varies per program for non-member families. On June 3, the cost for non-PEEC members will be $10 per family, regardless of how many are in a family.

The June 3 program will feature a visit from the Land of Enchantment Wildlife Foundation (LEWF) and the Santa Fe Raptor Center. The theme will be “Living with New Mexico’s Wildlife”.

Dr. Kathleen Ramsay, along with other board members from LEWF and volunteers from the Santa Fe Raptor Center, will present the many different species of animals people can encounter here in New Mexico. They will also discuss effective ways we can live in harmony with our animal friends.

The presentation will be a short lecture with ample time for Q&A. It will be hands-on and fun, and LEWF will furnish different animal skulls and pelts that people can view. In addition, the Santa Fe Raptor Center will bring one or more birds.

The presentation will begin at 6:30 p.m., so those wishing to hear the presentation should plan to arrive at the start of the event; however drop-ins are welcome throughout the program to view the materials and ask questions of the presenters.

There is no advance registration is required for this program. For more information about this and other events at PEEC, visit, email, or by call 505.662.0460.
