About Walking Mountains Science Center
Walking Mountains Science Center is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit and was founded in 1998 (under the name Gore Range Natural Science School) after our founder, Kim Langmaid, recognized a need for region-wide environmental science education in the Eagle Valley that involves students K-12 in the natural world. Kim also saw the need for natural science programming for families and adults. She recognized that the same benefits we would provide for students: developing an interest in science, reconnecting them to the outdoors and building a stewardship ethic, were just as applicable to all ages. Today, we are an educational resource for our region, offering year-round programming at our four locations that is aligned with state and national curriculum standards to more than 4,000 students annually in 23 public and private schools located throughout the Eagle Valley.
