MILWAUKEE (WITI) -- The Urban Ecology Center gets people outside -- and that's exactly what happened when Studio A's Brian Kramp visited not that long ago.

On any given day, you'll find...

  • Classes of students from local schools engaging in hands-on learning about science, nature and how to live more sustainably
  • Community members using the array of resources we offer
  • Adventure seekers borrowing our outdoor recreational equipment, climbing the rock-wall in Riverside Park or canoeing in the lagoon in Washington Park
  • People just visiting the Center, its staff and lots of volunteers

At the Urban Ecology Center’s locations people make connections between new and old ideas, their behaviors and their impact, and, most of all, with each other.
