BENEFITING: URBAN ECOLOGY CENTER INC
This third location is just 9 blocks from our home.
We will establish a third branch of the Urban Ecology Center to serve Milwaukee’s south side by converting a 100 year old tavern into a sustainably-designed community center. The Urban Ecology Center engages people of all ages in environmental exploration and provides Milwaukee’s youth with applied environmental education. Using the Menomonee River Valley as an outdoor classroom, the Center will serve 10,000 children annually with hands-on science education and will offer year-round after-school, evening and weekend community programs. At the Center’s two existing locations, daily programs engage youth in positive activities and create vibrant, safe parks.
