Whether you're vacationing in the Vail and Beaver Creek resort areas, are lucky enough to live here, or are just passing through, take the time to stop in to Walking Mountains Science Center in Avon, Colorado and immerse yourself in the beauty of our natural mountain environment.
Vail.net's Street Team took a field trip to Walking Mountain Science Center this morning. What an incredible place! On this cool May morning, several Mommies were there with very young children, exploring the wetlands, listening to the birds, climbing on the rocks and hiking around the five-acre site.
Several couples who were passing through the area were stretching their legs and enjoying the peace, beauty and inspiration at the Center, which is conveniently located just north of I-70's Exit 167 (the Avon exit).
There's something for everyone at Walking Mountains:
- State of the art exhibits
