Milwaukee Menomonee Valley Urban Ecology Center; prairie plants; factory

Join us to hear, first hand, how the Urban Ecology Center in Milwaukee began in a degraded park, with the ambition of a few teachers to show kids from nearby schools how to discover nature in their neighborhood. See how this ambition grew into the vibrant organization we have today, connecting tens of thousands of students each year to nature. Please share this invitation with others in your network, the creative problem solvers, community leaders, program directors, and educators.
