Although a newcomer to the Pajarito Environmental Education Center, Alex Zubelewicz is a longtime Los Alamos resident who has shared his time with the community.
He said he loves the outdoors, and he’s applied that passion to volunteering not only for PEEC, but also for other organizations in New Mexico and around the Southwest.
Zubelewicz began volunteering with the Santa Fe National Forest doing trail work. “Unfortunately during the winter and early spring, everything stops because the ground is frozen, so I wanted to start volunteering elsewhere. I liked the idea of finding an organization in Los Alamos, because it’s more convenient for me,” he said.
He said he would continue with the trail work when the weather is warmer.
Zubelewicz looked at VolunteerMatch.com and saw PEEC was in need of someone to do data management.
“It is a great way for me to fill up my time. Los Alamos as a community is small, and I’m trying to meet more people because I feel that sometimes I need to get out more. It’s an everyday adventure — you never know whom you’re going to meet,” Zubelewicz said of his volunteering experience.
Zubelewicz will partake in his next adventure this month as a weeklong project in Utah, repairing bridges and trails.
