    Take a Hike, Milwaukee!

    One of my favorite things to do is be fully immersed in nature while hiking in the middle of the city. The fact that you can walk from a street full of houses into a beautiful green haven in a matter of moments is so amazing!

    I love watching people’s faces their first time out hiking in one of the parks at our branches, especially those who have lived in Milwaukee all their lives but have never seen this natural side of their city. It’s great.

    I’d like to invite you to take part in an urban nature hike with me!

    See For Yourself - Summer Camps!
