What We Do


Join us for Costa Rica 2017!

Keep Exploring

Sometimes it's just good to get away and explore!

More than just another group travel "excursion", Urban Ecology Center Eco-travel trips:

  • Help you "get local": Center staff members leading trips have lived in or travelled extensively through the area you are exploring and can provide you with an experience off the beaten path
  • Make connections: Because they are very familiar with trip's destinations our staff will introduce you to local organizations with goals similar to ours and relevant to our own top 10 issues
  • Build a sense of community and camaraderie among fellow travellers, but are flexible enough for you to spend time venturing on your own
  • Are really fun!

"From the famous owl's nest from the movie Into The Wild, to swimming moose, a lonely grizzly, beaver entering his mansion, magnificent clear view of Denali, outstanding meals, our naturalist Nan's wisdom, delightful people and so much more in one was awesome!"
- Ellen Boettcher and Pat Cochran, participants, 2012 Great Alaska Adventure
