Recent visitors to Pajarito Environmental Education Center may have noticed some new faces crafting children’s games, managing the menagerie of live critters and writing pleas and grants for money.
To meet PEEC’s expanding needs, Katie Watson has accepted a new position as executive director, while Angelique Harshman is education programs director and Beth Cortright is nature center coordinator.
Watson began her career at PEEC as program director in 2010. She increased the number of public programs and worked to create and offer outdoor education programs for the Los Alamos Public Schools, both at individual schools and at PEEC.
She obtained grants for PEEC to create the Pajarito Plateau Field Science curriculum, which enables all elementary grade classes to do standards-based science programs in their schoolyards or trails.
Watson will continue to plan public programs for PEEC, but will also focus on management and fundraising for the organization. She has a degree from St John’s College, where she added search and rescue to the Great Books curriculum.
