When you are 20 years old, 10 years is half your lifetime, and time moves slowly. However, when you’re an older adult,

The evolution of PEEC and Earth Day celebrations offers a frame of reference.
Ten years ago a group of community members founded an organization called “Friends of the Nature Center” that resulted in the founding of the Pajarito Environmental Education Center (PEEC), now located on Orange Street.
