Serving Nature and Our Community
WMNC is your gateway to enjoying and understanding the ecology of the beautiful White Mountains region of Arizona.
In the White Mountains, diversity abounds 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 windswept alpine tundra atop Mount Baldy (Arizona's second-highest point at 11,420 ft). Mount Baldy's slopes are the headwaters for four major rivers that nourish rich streamside riparian habitats, fisheries, and the state’s thirsty human population.
Established in 2005, we are rapidly gaining momentum in completing our vision. For more information about our organization, see About Us.

We Need Your Help!
While we understand that current economic times are creating hardships for just about everyone, we have financial obligations that cannot be postponed for "better times."
Grant funding and public donations are practically non-existent because of financial constraints faced by corporations and government agencies. To meet our building construction, land payment, and land development requirements, we must aggresively pursue private donations.
WMC is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization,so your donation is tax-deductible.
Discover a Different Kind of Classroom!
When you are in the "outdoor classroom," you won't find desks or notebooks, or even stuffy instructors! Instead, you'll learn through your interactions with nature and wildlife:
- Walk the Nature Center trails
- Play in the water
- Experience the amazing biological diversity of the White Mountains
