Head to the Los Alamos Nature Center this Valentine’s Day for a special celebration of love in the animal kingdom. Enjoy tasty food from Pig + Fig Café and drinks from Bathtub Row Brewing Co-op while learning about the love lives of critters near and far.
After attendees enjoy dinner, drinks and activities around the nature center, they will head into the planetarium to watch a movie about mating in the animal kingdom at large. “Wild Love” will take place at 6 p.m. Friday, Feb. 14 at 6 p.m. Tickets are on sale now and space is limited!
Join the Pajarito Environmental Education Center for this unique date night or come solo to learn some new techniques from our furry and feathered friends to attract a valentine! The evening’s menu will feature food inspired by the diets of our local lovebirds (and insects and mammals), including snail’s “Slow … Cooked Vegetables,” bee’s “Honey Nut Crunch,” mountain lion’s “Charcuterie Plate” and more.
