What We Do

More Opportunities

Whether you are teaching the basics of birds or looking to liven up your after school program, the Center has many opportunities that will excite your students. The following programs are available for all Milwaukee area schools.

Citizen Science

Bridging the gap between research and the community is the goal of the Citizen Science program.  If you are interested in involving students in hands-on research, such as bird monitoring or monarch tagging, contact Tim Vargo, Manager of Research and Citizen Science, (414) 964-8050 ext. 116, .

School Programs at your school or the Urban Ecology Center

We offer a wide variety of one-time science and environmental education programs for students kindergarten through high school. Our staff will customize an environmental education program or outdoor recreation activity to fit the needs of your group. Hiking, touring our “green” building and recycling are just a few examples of programs that our staff can custom design to fit the needs of your group. Questions? Contact Lesley Sheridan, Community Programs Coordinator, (414) 964-8505,

Service Learning

What can be better than learning by doing?  Help the Urban Ecology Center improve the natural areas of our parks and learn about these important habitats through a service learning project.  Contact Meghan Jones, Volunteer Program Manager, (414) 964-8505 ext. 110, .
