Why do you support Walking Mountains Science Center?

I was originally exposed to the Walking Mountains Science Center through my children’s attendance at and enjoyment of summer camp there. Since then, I’ve become involved in educational experiences and now participate in the hiking club where I scaled my first Fourteener on the Mount of the Holy Cross. I am incredibly blessed to have found an institution that not only shares my passion for the outdoors but also works actively to expose others to it including underprivileged communities in the Valley, protecting it for future generations through various programs.

Further, I support the Walking Mountains Science Center because of the programs that target cradle to grey demographics across socio-economic circumstances. Their activities expose our community in the Vail Valley to the natural beauty around us. The educational programs deepen that passion and inspire conservation efforts to protect this valued resource for future generations.
