Nature Nerds Unite! Walking Mountains Science Center is a unique resource for Nature Nerds from pre-k to grey. Our programs allow people to explore nature, gain a scientific understanding, and learn about the wonders of our mountain environment through natural science and sustainability programs.

We engage visitors and locals of all ages in understanding the value of our precious natural resources through backcountry hikes, family nature walks and hands-on activities. We run programs throughout the Valley – at our Science Center in Avon, the Vail Nature Center, and the Nature Discovery Center on Vail Mountain.

Whether you're looking to go for a hike in Vail with family and friends, entertain your child, or visit our Nature Discovery Center to take a break from skiing, we have something for everyone!
