Walking Mountains – Buck Creek Parcel
In 2016, Walking Mountains Science Center purchased 5.8 acres of land next to their campus in Avon with the help of Eagle County, the Tang Family, the Town of Avon, and Eagle Valley Land Trust. Of the 5.8 acres, 3.5 were put under a conservation easement held by Eagle Valley Land Trust.
This protected portion of the Buck Creek Valley provides a space in which visitors to Walking Mountains Science Center can learn about nature, science, and conservation. While most conservation easements focus on the protection of larger landscapes and ecosystems, the Walking Mountains Buck Creek parcel has the primary purpose of promoting environmental education.
