Urban Ecology Center

 

The Urban Ecology Center fosters ecological understanding as inspiration for change, neighborhood by neighborhood. That's their mission. It's a straightforward statement. They have three Environmental Community Centers serving the greater Milwaukee community to help them achieve their mission. Each center has its own unique footprint in the community based on location and accessibility. All three centers are built with sustainability and the environment in mind. The flagship location at Riverside Park is an award-winning green designed building, though all of their locations are designed with the community and the environment in mind, are beautiful and have access to green space.

 

Riverside Park

Washington Park

Menomonee Valley

 

While each center has its own unique features, all have the same goals:

  • Provide outdoor science education for urban youth
  • Protect and use public natural areas, making them safe, accessible and vibrant
  • Preserve and enhance these natural areas and their surrounding waters
  • Promote community by offering resources that support learning, volunteerism,
    stewardship, recreation and camaraderie
  • Practice and model environmentally responsible behaviors

 

Each September Eat Local Milwaukee, a collaboration between Outpost and the Urban Ecology Center, brings you the Eat Local Challenge Resource Fair. The Fair, a free event open to the public, helps folks prepare for the 2-week Eat Local Challenge in September by offering workshops and presentations on how to bring local foods into your life, including a local market for stocking up on some products produced locally.

 

Eat Local Milwaukee is helped made possible with support from  #MKE Foodies and Slow Food Wisconsin Southeast.
