Have a PEECnic Oct. 14

-A A +A

The 12th annual PEECnic, Pajarito Environmental Education Center’s  yearly meeting for members and friends will be from 2-4 p.m. Oct. 14.
There will be activities, talks, and cider filling the air at the Pajarito Environmental Education Center.
PEEC traditionally holds its annual meeting in the fall, when Bandelier’s Park Flight ornithologist interns are still in town, so that attendees can learn about birds found across the Americas.  
The PEECnic features illustrated talks by the interns, kids’ activities and light refreshments.
This year, kids will be making a scarecrow to enter in the MainStreet scarecrow contest and there will be a cider press with plenty of apples to turn into juice.   
Finally, PEEC members will vote on the board of directors for the coming year.
As a special thank you to the community for encouraging county council to vote for a new nature center for Los Alamos, there will be a slideshow of PEEC’s history.  
Council received hundreds of letters and emails from community members in support of the nature center.   
The PEECnic is free and open to all, whether or not they are PEEC members.
