PEEC NEWS RELEASE
Please join us at the Los Alamos Nature Center on Saturday, Oct. 8 from 1 – 3 pm for PEECnic, the annual membership appreciation event. Everyone is invited to join PEEC staff, volunteers, and fellow members at this open house, public event. There will be snacks and desserts, games, friends, and educators sharing their PEEC wisdom.
Bring family, bring friends! This is a great time to introduce new people to our outstanding nature center. It will also be a great reminder of all the outstanding benefits that come with PEEC membership, including discounts in the gift shop, members-only rental equipment, and discounts on most programs. New members will receive a welcome packet and a PEEC member glass water bottle, while supplies last.
This year’s PEECnic will be led by PEEC’s new Visitors Services Manager, Ryan Ramaker. Ryan has so many fun activities planned for all ages. Critter experts will be on hand to show PEEC’s education animals and answer any questions about them. Attendees can play yard games, create art on our sidewalk, listen to a story, and check out the planetarium.
PEEC was founded in 2000 to serve the community of Los Alamos. It offers people of all ages a way to enrich their lives by strengthening their connections to our canyons, mesas, mountains, and skies. PEEC operates the Los Alamos Nature Center at 2600 Canyon Road, holds regular programs and events, and hosts several interest groups from birding to hiking to butterfly watching. PEEC activities are open to everyone; however, members receive exclusive benefits such as discounts on programs and gift shop merchandise. Annual memberships start at $35.
