The Urban Ecology Center is a neighborhood-based, non-profit community center located in Milwaukee County's historic Riverside Park. This "outdoor laboratory" includes 12 acres of wooded land and riparian habitat on the east bank of the Milwaukee River plus an imaginative, habitat-themed playground. The green building that houses our resource areas and classrooms is home to live animals, informational exhibits and user-friendly resource materials about the environment.
