The Pajarito Environmental Education Center was recently awarded a $7,600 Outdoor Classroom grant from Lowe’s Charitable and Education Foundation. PEEC will use these funds to further develop their science and nature education programs by building a shade structure storage shed, and greenhouse in the garden classroom, and purchasing gardening tools for the kids gardening program. The grant will also pay for energy efficiency upgrades by adding insulation to the roof and insulated blinds to windows in the nature center.The Outdoor Classroom grant program, started in 2005 by Lowe’s Charitable and Education Foundation and National Geographic Explorer magazine, has funded the construction and expansion of outdoor learning environments at public schools nation-wide. During the past two years, more than 200 schools have received Outdoor Classroom grants totaling more than $40,000.“We wish to thank Lowe’s for generously supporting science and nature education at PEEC with an Outdoor Classroom grant,” said Branden Willman-Kozimor, program coordinator for PEEC. “We look forward to implementing these projects and expanding opportunities for our students and the community to learn.”The PEEC garden classroom will give students the opportunity to learn about local food security, organic gardening and water conservation.
