Interest Groups

PEEC Interest Groups are e-mail discussion groups for PEEC members interested in discussions with others with similar interests. Whether you enjoy birding, butterfly watching, observing wild plants, or other nature discoveries, there is a group for you!

Any member may send messages that all members of the group will receive. The lists are maintained on Google Groups, but it isn’t necessary to have a Google account to join. If you have any difficulty subscribing or unsubscribing, please contact us for assistance.


PEEC Birders

PEEC_Butterfly_WatchersThe butterfly watchers group shares sightings and photos of local butterflies – and occasionally the stray moth!

Moderators: Akkana Peck, Jennifer Macke



Policy on Interest Groups

  1. PEEC has established e-mail interest groups so that community members can easily share information with a specific group of people.
  2. PEEC interest groups are moderated by volunteers who spend considerable time establishing and moderating the group as well as answering questions and planning events, such as bird walks.
  3. PEEC sets up these groups through volunteer and paid effort. Without PEEC these groups would not exist, so we request that group members support PEEC by becoming PEEC members. Learn more about membership benefits.
  4. Since PEEC’s mission is to connect people with the natural world, we also welcome people who wish to join an interest group but cannot support PEEC financially at this time.
