Join PEEC In June & July For Summer Family Programs


With summer approaching, PEEC is excited to announce the schedule for Summer Family Evenings (SFE). SFEs take place on Wednesdays in June and July at Los Alamos Nature Center. They start at 6 PM and provide fun for the whole family. SFEs are free for PEEC member families and $5 for non-member families, and admission is paid at the door. Thanks to the Del Norte LOV Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Del Norte Credit Union, for sponsoring Summer Family Evenings in 2023. Check out what we have scheduled for June: 

On June 7th, Learn How to Lure a Fairy! During this FREE SFE event, using natural, recycled, and purchased materials, we’ll create fairy dwellings with a battery-powered light to place in your home garden. Join Los Alamos Libraries staff for fairy stories, magic, and happiness.

June 14th, see Rattlesnakes and other reptiles up close! Join Bob and Lorraine Myers, Director and Head Curator of the Rattlesnake Museum in Albuquerque. Get a chance to see rattlesnakes and other animals from the museum up close, address phobias and misinformation about predators, and more.
