Due to the rain event yesterday in Avon, we are closed this morning at the Avon Tang Campus while we clean up. Scheduled programming will resume however there is no visitor parking in the top parking lot. Visitors should park in the lower staff and overflow parking lot. 

All programming today will resume as scheduled and we ask anyone using the trails to use caution. Trails on campus are muddy and may contain debris from flooding yesterday along Buck Creek. 

Check out some photos taken this morning and we look forward to sharing more photos and some science about the power of water and weather in the coming days from right here at Walking Mountains Science Center!
