Join the Pajarito Environmental Education Center (PEEC) for Earth Day Your Way, sponsored by Los Alamos Children’s Dentistry! This year, PEEC is challenging you to get outside and moving YOUR WAY to celebrate Earth. Run a 5K, take a hike, plant a garden, watch the birds in your backyard, observe the night sk, or spend time outdoors however you prefer starting on Earth Day, which is April 22, until the end of April.
