Two chances to share ideas

-A A +A

Visit Pajarito Environmental Education Center from 6:30-8:30 p.m. Thursday or from 1-3 p.m. Dec. 1, to contribute ideas about the natural qualities of the Pajarito Plateau.
PEEC would like to know what aspects of local nature they should showcase, and public input is desired.
PEEC volunteers, board and staff are working to create an interpretive plan.
When completed, the interpretive plan will answer questions like: What should a nature center in Los Alamos say and show? What are the key messages should it send to visitors and residents? What activities will best address those key messages?  What will it mean to the community it represents?
PEEC wants to hear stories about the natural area and learn from the people of Los Alamos, exactly what they think of when asked to describe the Pajarito Plateau.
This input will help PEEC’s interpretive planning committee write a plan that reflects what is important to the community.
The events will start with a presentation on PEEC’s mission and vision.
Then, participants will join in an interactive idea-generation activity and have a chance to vote on the natural qualities they like to see addressed by PEEC.  
Those ideas will, in turn, help PEEC create a plan to strengthen people’s connection with the natural world around them.
Such an “Idea Factory” is a chance to get involved in the future of PEEC, Los Alamos’ nature center. These events are free, but advance registration is preferred.
Light refreshments will be served. For more information or to register, visit PajaritoEEC.org, call 662-0460, or email Programs@PajaritoEEC.org.
