Nature Notes

Nature Notes is the quarterly newsletter published by PEEC and distributed to members and donors. It covers topics more in-depth than the weekly PEEC This Week email newsletter. Nature Notes covers such topics as local plants and wildlife, ecological issues, environmentally-friendly practices, nature recreation, and more. To receive your copy of the Nature Notes newsletter in the mail each quarter, become a member of PEEC today!

Earlier editions of Nature Notes are available from the Nature Notes Archives page.
