Pajarito Environmental Education Center is an amazing place. I volunteered in the office doing administrative odd jobs for a few months last year and got an opportunity to see how this organization works and to witness first hand the hard work and genuine dedication that goes into it. The people that run the programs are real and have an amazing love of what they teach, to people of all ages. They aren't in it for the money but rather the chance to convey true respect of our environment to others and help them learn to know more about their surroundings.

I first visited PEEC in 2007, and joined the board of directors later that year. I currently help care for the live exhibit animals. I love to see how people of all ages learn new things at the nature center and then take that new information back out into the world. For example, I've seen many people touch a snake for the first time, and as a result, learn why snakes are an important part of the local ecosystem. I believe that these encounters will help them better understand and appreciate the animals they see outdoors.

PEEC serves the community, both through the nature canter and through its many outdoor programs. PEEC provides interesting ways of getting outdoors and inspires people to seek the benefits of being outdoors. PEEC is also a good neighbor to the community by supporting local schools and by partnering with many other organizations. Since its inception, PEEC has grown steadily, and is preparing to operate a new nature center that will showcase the amazing natural treasures of the Pajarito Plateau.

I highly recommend PEEC because it is a good steward: a steward for people, for the community, and for nature.
