Join us for a Winter Soirée!
Come celebrate the season at the Nature Center on Saturday, December 16th from 2:00-5:00pm! Enjoy tapas, wine, and hot cider, live music, a silent auction, crafts (you’ll go home with tokens of the holiday season that will make lovely gifts!), and great company. Join us at 4:00pm for a solstice spiral walk, and stick around to warm up by the fire.

Our New Little Free Library
Thanks to Cub Scout Pack 323, there’s a new Little Free Library at the Nature Center! Pack 323 designed, built, and installed the library, which even features a living roof similar to the roof of the bike shelter behind it. Swing by the Nature Center to share a book or grab a book!
You can find our Little Free Library on their official map, but not all local libraries are registered. Click below for a printable map of little libraries around Moscow, courtesy of Chelsea Feeney.
Growing Our Community One New Member at a Time
At PCEI we put a ton of effort into planning meaningful education programs, restoring at-risk stream ecosystems, hosting fun parties and events, and keeping up with maintenance at the PCEI Nature Center and Rose Creek Nature Preserve.
To maintain and grow our programs, we also need to maintain and grow our PCEI community. Memberships help us improve PCEI’s natural spaces, provide more stellar events, and deliver more educational programs. Plus, a strong membership base gives us more credibility and strength when applying for grants. Please consider joining the PCEI community.
