PEEC offers Fire Recovery Walk

-A A +A

For the first program of its Fire Recovery Series, Pajarito Environmental Education Center will offer an exploratory hike from Ponderosa Campground at 8:30 a.m. Aug 25. Terry Foxx and Chris Judson will lead the non-strenuous hike.  It is free and open to the public, with no registration required.
The slow-meandering walk will focus on observation and discovery of the complexity of the ecosystems of the Pajarito Plateau and the change that these ecosystems have experienced over the past 200 years.
Judson and Foxx will discuss both the history of fire in the area and ecological recovery from fire. They will point out changes that have taken place through time from fire, urbanization and climate.
Participants should meet at Bandelier Monument’s Ponderosa Campground on N.M. 4 at 8:30 a.m. and wear good walking shoes and bring water.
