Can't tell how much I love Walking Mountains for both adults and children. Wonderful place to spend time!
I'm the Superintendent of Eagle County Schools and I just can't say enough about the quality educational experiences Walking Mountains brings to thousands of our kids. Their facilities and staff are absolutely amazing but what puts this organization over the top in terms of quality is their commitment to real science education and creating hands-on learning opportunities for kids. It is amazing what they are doing for our community's children and their future.
Walking Mountains Science School's Earth Keepers Program is one of the most educational programs for Pre-k children at an affordable fee. Amazing program due to knowledgable and caring staff. Being able to explore the beautiful campus during each EK session, only adds to our littles outdoor appreciation.
Not only is Walking Mountains a fantastic organization to work for with clear goals, ingenuity and passion, it is an exceptional community center. Their commitment to teaching real science to all members of the community is commendable.
Walking mountain science center is a wonderful green building. The organization
educates youth and adults about ways to help our environment by making experiences available that are enjoyable and informative. We have visited the center when vacationing in the area and have found the visit worthwhile..

We live in Avon. My family love Walking Mountains Science Center. The staff are so knowledgeable and willing to answer all our questions. I love the way they engage with the kids. We went to Vail where there 'a a science but there and didn't realize that it was part of the Walking Mountains. The gals there talked to us about the trails and the different locations and what to look for.
Excellent staff and programming. Great partnership with ECSD. So grateful to have this resource in our community!
I am a teacher who has been on several Walking Mountains field trips. Last year's winter trip was incredible. The facilities are beautiful; inside and out, the teachers are wonderfully patient and knowledgeable, and the learning was exactly what we needed from the science center. Not only did our Fifth graders learn the Science content, teachers and students learned a great deal about each other. Students were coaching each other when the trail got really tough and played great learn-about-each-other type games at the top of a ridge overlooking Beaver Creek mountain. What a great resource Walking Mountains is for our community.
WMSC Is an amazing educational non-profit that provides supplemental programs for our school curriculum and an amazing opportunity for our students to experience outdoor education to the fullest! They have a well-trained and knowledgeable staff base who help to inspire learning and exploration in the students they teach.
