Nature, Wildlife, and Education

Nature Center ExplorerThe White Mountain Nature Center (WMNC) is a nature center dedicated to helping you enjoy and understand the ecology of the beautiful White Mountains region of Arizona.

The White Mountains region is very diverse. You will experience this as you climb from grasslands that are home to speedy pronghorn, through the world’s largest stand of ponderosa pine (teeming with forest-dependent wildlife), to the alpine tundra on Mount Baldy (Arizona’s second-highest point at 11,420 ft).

We established the nature center in 2005, and we are rapidly completing our vision. Our complex now includes a wildlife rehabilitation area.  WMNC is actively involved with White Mountains communities and organizations and is building a nature center that is focused on wildlife and nature education and wildlife rehabilitation.
