  • Pajarito Environmental Education Center will air a free live webcast of the bat flight from Bracken Cave near San Antonio, Texas from 5-6:30 p.m. Sept. 18.  Chris Judson from Bandelier will be on hand to talk about the bat flight and answer questions.

    Did you know that the 20 million Mexican free-tailed bats living in Bracken Cave eat approximately 200 tons of insects every night? They emerge from the cave each evening to feed, to the wonder of scores of eager spectators.

    Now, with the age of technology, those spectators don’t even need to be in Texas. Those wanting to witness this exciting spectacle can watch “BatsLIVE: A Distance Learning Adventure” via webcast.

    Bats are the only mammals that can fly, thanks to their modified fingers and thin membrane. In order to catch insects, most bats are highly maneuverable, fly very fast and sometimes fly as far as 30-50 miles in one night. 

  • “How I Learned to Lead ‘Priedhorsky Moderate:’ Forty Adventures in Canyon Country, Starting Age 10”

    Part coming-of-age story, part exploration of local natural beauty and part compendium of debacles, Reid Priedhorsky’s talk is about the canyons of the Colorado Plateau. 

    In photographs and illustrations, he will tell the story of his 40 adventures in the ethereal landscape, which inspired the alien worlds of Calvin and Hobbes’ “Spaceman Spiff,” at 7:45 p.m. Sept. 19 at Fuller Lodge.

    Priedhorsky will speak about impacts of growing up Priedhorsky and give a presentation to show exactly what happened as a result.

  •  High atop the mesa and deep within the Jemez forest, lies a special place full of historical logging villages and pueblo ruins. This area sees little motorized traffic aside from the occasional 4-wheeler or dirt bike passing through.

    Even those who pass through fail to notice the hundreds of cultural sites along the way. These sites are often completely camouflaged by natural foliage or rocks, only noticeable to those with a trained eye.  

    Within just a few miles of mesa, adventurers can see a historical logging village, a large pueblo ruin, hundreds of lesser pueblo ruins, and rock art from multiple periods of time. Those who desire to find these places will find their way with a little research.
