High Country Speaker Series, Avon, CO

  • 200 Benchmark Road Avon, CO (map)

Every winter Walking Mountains Science Center brings our community notable and passionate speakers who offer a unique view of our natural surroundings.  The 2016 theme is Creating a Sense of Place. 

How do the places we call home come to define who we are and how can we strengthen our relationships with where we live. The High Country Speaker Series is a partnership between Walking Mountains Science Center and Eagle Valley Library District with the mission of encouraging environmental awareness, inspiring positive relationships with the natural world, and creating thought provoking dialogue in our community. Join us for presentations and discussion with local celebrities, renowned authors, and outdoor enthusiasts as we dial in on why we love our beautiful, engaging, and fragile place!

These evening programs will begin at 5:30 pm & are FREE to attend with a $10 suggested donation.
