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.

Walking Mountains' Sustainability Programs act as an agent of change to achieve local climate action goals and improve the social, economic, and environmental resilience of the Eagle County community. They serve as a resource and education hub to inspire action from local to global across key focus areas: climate change, energy & buildings, sustainable business, sustainable destinations, and waste reduction and diversion.
