At its annual Earth Day Festivalback in May, PEEC introduced the public phase of “Take Wing with the Nature Center” – a capital campaign to fund indoor and outdoor exhibits at the new Los Alamos County Nature Center. The campaign goal is $1 million. Over $850,000 has already been raised in the private phase of the campaign.
The overarching mission of “Take Wing with the Nature Center” is to provide exciting, engaging, and interactive exhibits, making the new nature center a state-of-the-art learning center and a community treasure.
Gifts have already come in from hundreds of citizens in Los Alamos and Santa Fe, as well as from businesses such as Los Alamos National Bank, which presented PEEC with a check for $30,000 at the Earth Day Festival on May 3. Other local businesses have also generously donated so far, including Zia Credit Union and Del Norte Credit Union.
“The exhibits we design and fabricate with these funds will belong to the community,” PEEC Executive Director Katie Watson said. “PEEC will donate all the exhibits to Los Alamos County, to ensure that they stay with the nature center for many, many years to come. It’s a wonderful public-private partnership, with the county providing $4.3 million for the nature center building, and PEEC providing $1 million for the exhibits.”
