Quiet, Gentle Walk with Pajarito Environmental Education Center and Sue Watts. A gentle walk for those who want a quiet walk along a relatively flat trail. The walks range from one to two miles in length and may include gentle changes in elevation. They have been known to stop on the way up steeper inclines to feel the mullein leaves. By popular demand, they are keeping the 20 minutes of silent walking. The group will leave PEEC at 9:30 a.m. and return around 11:30 a.m.
