Northern New Mexico native has love for outdoors

-A A +A
By Gina Velasquez

Margaret Blewett grew up in northern New Mexico and developed a deep appreciation for this area. It is that love and the Pajarito Plateau that drives her to volunteer at the Pajarito Environmental Education Center.
She first started volunteering as a preschool teacher, leading a class for young ones at the nature center, and more recently Blewett volunteers as a docent.
Even at 81 years of age, she has plenty of energy to share with the community.
Blewett grew up in Albuquerque. “I spent my summers at a Girl Scout camp in the Jemez mountains. It was during those summers that I fell in love with this area,” she said in a recent PEEC interview. “I went to the camp for many years, first as a camper and then as a counselor.
She has taught in Australia for one year and then returned to Albuquerque, before moving to Los Alamos. She has resided on the Hill with her husband for the past 51 years. “We raised our six kids in Los Alamos, and naturally they grew up to be New Mexico lovers,” Blewett said. “I especially love northern New Mexico and southeastern Utah, where I have spent a lot of time camping and hiking.” Blewett boasts she is the proud grandmother of 14 grandchildren.
