Itâ€™s pretty simple; the Urban Ecology Center gets people outside.
Okay, you're thinking, doing what? On any given day youâ€™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 Centerâ€™s locations people make connections between new and old ideas, their behaviors and their impact, and, most of all, with each other.
