    Make Pet Rock ‘Siblings’ with the YMCA
    At the Pajarito Environmental Education Center’s Summer Family Evening on Tuesday, staff members from the YMCA will be facilitating an activity helping kids make pet rock “siblings.” The program will be from 6:30-8 p.m. at PEEC. Families are welcome to drop in any time throughout the program.
    After going outside to search for a pair of rocks, kids and their parents will bring them back in to PEEC where they can use different art and craft supplies to make their very own pet rock “siblings” — the child gets to keep one, and the other one goes in the Hilltop Garden at PEEC. That way next time they visit the garden, they can bring their pet rocks to visit their “brothers” and “sisters.”
    The event is free to attend for PEEC members; the cost for non-members is $5 per family, regardless of how many are in the family. No advance registration is required.
