Walking Mountains Science Center’s new campus has served thousands of school children, families and adults in its first year of operations. This innovative Science Center was made possible due to the generosity of private and public support throughout the state of Colorado. Eagle County contributed a total of $200,000 from the Eco Build Fund towards renewable energy systems, a high performance building envelope, and other building features that exceed code for commercial construction. The Science Center is currently on track to receive LEED Platinum certification.
The Commissioners recently presented the last payment of support from the Eco Build Fund. Pictured are Jon Stavney and Sara Fischer (County Commissioners), Markian Feduschak (Walking Mountains Director) , Peter Runyon, (County Commissioner), and Adam Palmer (Eagle County Environmental Policy Manager).
On behalf of all the children, families and adults served now and into the future, Walking Mountains Science Center staff and board are most grateful to Eagle County and all our citizens for the tremendous support of science and environmental education.
Walking Mountains Science Center is open for visitation and school programs Monday – Saturday, 10am to 6pm. Admission to the center is free.
