Open Doors

Stroll through the Urban Ecology Center’s new Riverland property, adjacent to the Milwaukee Rotary Centennial Arboretum, to be inspired by the innovation alive in our community and to witness the beginning of a new journey. Preview original works commissioned for the Summer Solstice Soirée’s silent auction that bring new life to salvaged doors once part of the PY Godfrey LLC inventory. Created by local artists, the works reflect the mission of the Center and the opportunities that lie beyond these newly opened doors.

Please note: Registation for the 2014 event is now closed. 

All proceeds from this event will directly benefit the students, families, neighborhoods,
and natural environments in which we carry out our mission. 

Many thanks to our sponsors!
