We at PEEC and the Los Alamos Nature Center are committed to providing learning opportunities about our surrounding nature for all ages. Besides the educational talks, classes, outings and camps, we strive to be an outlet for environmental education through our website, newsletters and interest groups – most of which are free for all to access.
