PEEC News:

One of the many Take Wing events that Pajarito Environmental Education Center (PEEC) is offering exclusively to those who donate $150 or more to its capital campaign, is sure to delight.

At 5:30 p.m. Thursday, June 26 a small group, limited to 10 people, will explore the Valles Caldera by van, getting up close to the resident elk.

PEEC is raising roughly $1 million through the capital campaign to fund indoor and outdoor exhibits for the new Los Alamos County Nature Center, slated to open in spring 2015.

Participants on the special tour will ride in comfort in the Valles Caldera’s vans as the driver and guide help them to spot one of the most majestic North American mammals living today. The group will get up close and personal with the huge herds of elk that roam the Valles Caldera National Preserve using the binoculars and spotting scopes provided. To conclude the tour, they will stop off at the historic Bond Cabin for a delicious snack.
