White Mountain Wildlife And Nature Center

425 South Woodland Road
Pinetop, AZ 85935


About Us:

We started WMNC, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, in 2005 and purchased the land for the Nature Center in 2007. After years of planning and tremendous community support, the Nature Center complex is scheduled to be fully functional as soon as 2012. We are excited about the continuing development, and we are certain that the communities we serve will be, too!

We are a valuable resource for sponsors and donors to exhibit goodwill and concern about the future of our natural resources.

Our Mission, Vision, and Goals:

Established in 2003, the Nature Center is a tax-exempt, nonprofit educational organization.  Our site is on 10 acres in Lakeside, next to the Big Springs Environmental Study Area, with 5 acres leased from the Town of Pinetop-Lakeside on its Mountain Meadow Recreation Complex.
