About Us:

A log cabin perched between an alpine meadow and the forested bank of Gore Creek houses the Vail Nature Center. This seven-acre facility in the heart of Vail is a tranquil gem whose knowledgeable staff hosts informative bird, wildflower and beaver pond hikes, as well as the Vail Hiking Club. Camp Eco Fun is heaven for children. Classes covering special topics such nature art and photography and fly fishing are available. They even offer stargazing after dark or an opportunity to meet Colorado's amazing raptors.

Great learning respite in Vail. Free and you can touch several taxidermy animals!
