A World Class Environmental Learning Center for Residents and Visitors

At Walking Mountains Science Center we provide locals and visitors from pre-k to gray with opportunities to explore nature, gain a scientific understanding, and learn about the many wonders of our mountain environment through natural science and sustainability programs.

We envision a future where everyone in the community understands the science of nature and is inspired to take action as an environmental steward.

Come explore your curious nature with us at the Tang Campus in Avon, Nature Discovery Center on Vail Mountain or Vail Nature Center!

Face masks are required on all programs and to enter all buildings per public health orders.
