As a non-profit, Walking Mountains relies on the support of partner organizations to help sponsor our natural science programs and fund raising events. We are immensely grateful to the many groups throughout the Vail Valley and beyond who partner in delivering our programs or otherwise support our mission through financial and in-kind donations.

  • Our Corporate Partners provide funding and in-kind support of our events and educational programs.
  • Our Foundation Partners provide financial grants for science education programs like Girls in Science and Avon-in-School, programs that enhance the science curriculum through field study and help narrow the achievement gap.

For a list of all corporate, foundation and individual donors, please view our Annual Report.
