  • The Pajarito Environmental Education Center will have shorter hours for its free Nature Playtimes starting in June, and will also have a new teacher for the preschool program.  
    PEEC’s Nature Playtimes offer a chance for the youngest kids to get out and enjoy nature on the Pajarito Plateau.
    Each session offers time to explore outside, a craft or sensory activity and stories and songs. The program is free and open to all, with no registration required.  
    Nature Playtimes have been running from 10-11:30 a.m. on Mondays.  Beginning June 4, the structured part of the program will be from 10-11 a.m.  

  • Barnabas Collins has risen once again and is stalking the town of Collinsport, Maine.
    Director Tim Burton and actor Johnny Depp have teamed up yet again to bring all that is creepy, dark and sinister to the silver screen. This time, their efforts have resulted in “Dark Shadows.”
    Based on the TV series that ran from 1966-1971, the movie revolves around Barnabas (Depp), an imprisoned vampire, forced to live in a coffin underground, as punishment for scorning the witchy Angelique Bouchard (Eva Green), with whom he had an affair two centuries prior to his imprisonment.

  • Imagine a place where technology does not exist. There are no smart phones, e-readers, computers, Internet connections or even telephones. It’s a place where people cultivated gardens to grow food to feed the family, raised livestock and depended on wood to heat their homes.
    Such a place may seem like a distant memory or something out of a story about the Wild West, but it does exist. It’s called El Rancho de las Golondrinas and it’s located on the outskirts of Santa Fe, tucked away from the interstate traffic and hustle and bustle of downtown. Located on 200 acres of farmland, the living history museum is dedicated to showing visitors how 18th and 19th century New Mexicans lived.
