The Urban Ecology Center is a community based, non-profit environmental education center with three locations—Washington Park, Riverside Park, and the Menomonee Valley. Each location is home to unique “green” buildings where the nearly 200 combined acres of adjacent parkland are used as an “outdoor classroom” to teach school groups and summer camps about the nature in their neighborhood. Additionally each branch offers a variety of outdoor recreational programming for adults and families, as well as a variety of volunteer opportunities.
