As a resource, we are your source
In support of this objective we publish a monthly newsletter, maintain a sustainability and stewardship calendar and introduce our affiliates. Don't forget about one of our major resources in partnership with Friends of Alta, the Research and Environmental Education Database. We encourage all who are curious and inquisitive to peruse and share information.

Building a community
Over the years we have established many successful community partnerships. These collaborations help the Alta Environmental Center prosper and their participation is vital in order for us to continue to help the community of Alta, our region and the ski industry strive toward sustainability. We will continue to support, develop and deepen these partnerships to increase opportunities for ecological research, education and to promote sustainable practices through stewardship.
We are proud to work with these non-profits, state and federal entities. Without their support and willingness we would not have made the progress we have today. Thank you to all our great partners!
