Announcements & News

Don't Miss this Exciting Matching Opportunity!

Kids at PEEC summer camp having some fun on the Rio GrandeAs you think about year-end giving this year, please consider a donation to PEEC. Your gift to PEEC’s Annual Fund allows us to keep offering the hikes, classes, talks, and school field trips you love all year long. But wait! Maybe you have already given generously to our one-time campaign to raise $1.2 million for the new nature center. So why are we asking you to support PEEC again? Without the Annual Fund, PEEC can’t keep offering the rich multitude of programs that get people outside enjoying nature. Even better yet, if you donate to the Annual Fund by the end of 2014, two generous donors will match your gift with a donation to our capital campaign, up to $20,000. It’s easy! You give to keep the hikes going and the doors open, and they will match your gift with one to build inspiring exhibits for the new center. Learn more and donate!

What are Those Strange Things on the Roof of the New Nature Center?

Solar panel attachments on roof of new nature centerDriving past the construction site of the new nature center at 2600 Canyon Road, you might think to yourself, “What are those strange things on the roof?” In fact, they are attachments for photovoltaic (solar) panels. While the funds may not be available to install the panels before the building opens next spring, having the attachments in place will ensure that it is easy to add them when funds become available. - Read more about the new nature center!

Photo From PEEC Tour Takes High Honors!

David Schiferl's winning photo from a PEEC tourWOW! Los Alamos local David Schiferl has had a photo selected for a special exhibit at the New Mexico Museum of Natural History & Science! The exhibit is in commemoration of the 50th Anniversary of the  Wilderness Act. All the photos had to be from offically-designated New Mexico Wilderness Areas. Photographs will be on exhibit at NMMNHS from October 17, 2014 to January 8, 2015. There are a total of 25 photos shown in the exhibition. David's photo (shown here) was taken in the Bandelier Wilderness during Terry Fox's PEEC tour last June. Congratulations David!
