Take a virtual helicopter ride with Classic Air Medical at PEEC’s Summer Family Evening on Wednesday, June 17. This live-streamed event will start at 6 p.m. Participants will learn about the important work that Classic Air Medical does as an air medical transfer service. Del Norte Credit Union is sponsoring PEEC’s Summer Family Evenings all summer long!

Viewers will get a tour of the helicopter and then take off. The helicopter will fly over the nature center and around Los Alamos. Participants are encouraged to watch on a laptop or phone, so they can go outside and see if the helicopter flies over their home!

Summer Family Evenings will take place via Zoom every Wednesday in June and July (except July 1). These events will start at 6 p.m. and provide virtual fun for the whole family! Registration is required to get the link and password for the Zoom broadcast. Visit peecnature.org/events to sign up for this event and other upcoming programming.

If attendees are able to do so, PEEC asks that they please consider a gift to help the organization continue providing programming like this.
