Families & Activities
Should I bring my family?

Yes! Many TSRC scientists bring their families with them every year. Telluride Science aims to be as family friendly as possible, with families welcome for breakfast and at the TSRC BBQ on Wednesday nights.

In September 2019, the TSRC board approved funding for a pilot program to support scientists with families. There are many excellent programs for kids that will give them a great experience in the mountains while you attend your workshop. Discounts are available with many providers. Please inquire if interested, and we'll provide discount codes or other information and support when available.

If there's something that you need that you don't see here, please email Cindy Fusting.

Note to breastfeeding mothers:
TSRC always supplies a private room for breastfeeding or pumping purposes at the TSRC facility. You may make a reservation through TSRC on-site staff for certain time-slots each day; otherwise, it is available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
