Animals of the Night
Hundreds of people attend our annual Animals of the Night Education fundraiser each year. Attendees of all ages explore the trails of the PCEI Nature Center to learn about nocturnal animals, such as bats, wolves, and raccoons from local experts. The event also features live animals, free snacks and beverages, games, and crafts. Click here for a video of the event!

PCEI has sponsored and co-sponsored some great, informational and inspirational movies on a variety of topics over the years. In 2013 and 2014 respectively, PCEI and local Americorps members teamed up to bring I Am and Project Wild Thing to the Kenworthy Performing Arts Center in Moscow, ID. More recently, PCEI also partnered with the University of Idaho Environmental Law Society to show environmental short films at the 2015 People and Nature Film Festival. Keep an eye out for more opportunities to get informed through fabulous cinema!
