Los Luceros is a local gem of the New Mexico Historic Sites. More than 150 species have been seen at Los Luceros and it is rarely open for birding. However, it was once nominated as an Audubon Important Bird Area (IBA). PEEC and New Mexico Historic Sites have partnered to open the site to a birding tour led by local birder Joe Fitzgibbon.


This is a unique opportunity to bird a new area with easy access to massive old-growth cottonwoods and fantastic Rio Grande habitat. This birding trip is limited to 12 participants, so register soon! The cultural site is surely one of New Mexico’s most scenic and historically significant properties. Learn more about Los Luceros here.


The group will meet at the Los Alamos Nature Center at 6:00 AM and arrive at Los Luceros around 7:00 AM. Participants will spend half the day at the site and plan to leave by noon. Come prepared with appropriate gear for all possible weather conditions. We recommend wearing sturdy hiking shoes and bringing a backpack containing water, snacks, warm clothing, rain gear, sunscreen, and a hat.


Admission: $10/PEEC member, $12/non-member.
