A Taste of Nature


A Taste of Nature is Walking Mountains Science Center’s signature philanthropic event and one of the Vail Valley’s most anticipated summer evenings. Enjoy delectable wines, delicious food, and delightful company under the stars while raising vital support for Walking Mountains programs that awaken a sense of wonder in our community.

In 2022 we will honor Pat Tierney & Argie Ligeros with our Reach for the Peak Award and will present Holy Cross Energy (CEO Bryan Hannegan) with our Founder’s Stewardship Award.

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.
