Get grounded trail class Saturday

-A A +A

Kristi Beguin will offer another of her popular classes, called “Get Grounded,” from 9 a.m. to noon on on Saturday.
After meeting at the Pajarito Environmental Education Center, participants will spend the morning connecting with nature in an unusual way. While traveling scenic trails off the beaten path, attenders will have the chance to explore concepts of natural movement, grounding, mindfulness and balance.
In this age of fast-paced, high-tech lifestyles, this class will allow individuals to slow down, observe, breathe and enjoy the outdoors in a deeply experiential manner.
Kristi Beguin is a scientist, an environmental consultant, and expert herbalist. She has practiced her skills through outdoor activities, martial arts, writing and making medicines. Her medical applications incorporate Western herbal medicine, traditional Chinese medicine and flower essence therapy.
Advance registration is required. The class is designed for adults and costs $25 for non-members or $20 for PEEC members. Further information may be found on the PEEC website, PajaritoEEC.org or by phoning 662-0460.
The class will meet at PEEC (Pajarito Environmental Education Center), 3540 Orange Street, and will then move out to a nearby trail.
It is family day at PEEC from 6:30 to 8 p.m. on Tuesday to learn about local birds in the area. Dave Yeamans, birder and educator, will be at PEEC to teach kids and adults how to identify some of our local birds. This event is free for PEEC members and just $5 per family for non-members.
Participants may get to wear PEEC’s bird hat and hear stories about its great collection of bird feathers. Photos of mystery birds are welcome, as are descriptions of one’s own backyard birds.
Public is welcome to bring binoculars, a favorite bird book, however, PEEC will have some for use.
