New Parking Plan for 2017 Event
We have moved to offsite parking in order to accommodate all guest vehicles as efficiently as possible. Guests should park in the Elk Lot just west of the main entrance to Beaver Creek Resort — map and directions are below. Parking is free, and Mercedes shuttles will be running between the Walking Mountains campus and the Elk Lot throughout the evening. Please be sure to allow for a few extra minutes travel time.
Directions to the Elk Lot:
- From from the middle of the town of Avon head south on Avon Road through 2 roundabouts, past the Westin Riverfront and over the Eagle River
- At the next roundabout take the exit onto Route 6, heading west
- The Elk Lot entrance is on the left — look for Walking Mountains & Beaver Creek signage at the entrance
- Park anywhere and shuttles will board at the bus shelter
Every summer the event showcases the beauty of our facility and highlights the overwhelming support that enables us to fulfill our mission of awakening and inspiring environmental stewardship through natural science education for people of all ages. A Taste of Nature Gala celebrates the goodness of life, the joy of friendship and the bounty that comes from the land around us while also raising vital support for educational programs that benefit the children, adults and families of our community. Proceeds from A Taste of Nature Gala will be used to enhance and expand our programming so that even more people can participate and benefit from our unique, hands-on science education in the future. We are overwhelmed by each of these valued individuals that has contributed to our success.
