Outdoor Discovery Center

Located on the mountaintop at Slickrock Village Green, The Outdoor Discovery Center is an indoor nature walk, a private resource center and your gateway to learning and fun on the mountain. Open year-round, the team of nature experts are always happy to offer personalized guidance to outdoor recreational activities throughout the region to help you and your family discover your next adventure.

Director of Natural Resources, Kat Dunham and her enthusiastic team of experts are Mountain Air’s private park rangers. You never know what natural wonder you may see while on a guided walk by one of the naturalists—deer, wild turkey, red squirrel, opossum, bobcat, black bear, songbirds, raptors and salamanders have all been sighted on the mountaintop. Whether your nature questions are about animals, plants, trail maps or our Outdoor Discovery Center exhibit animals, the Mountain Air naturalist team is eager to provide the answers.
