    Welcome our New Managing Director!

    We are excited to announce that Ed Krishok is joining our leadership team as managing director in a new limited term role, for a two-year period as the organization begins transitions related to growth plans in Milwaukee. Ed begins the managing director role on July 1.

    What does being a UEC member means to the community?

    The Urban Ecology Center is a community center with the mission to connect people in cities to nature and each other. Our members are a key component of this mission and an example that everyone can join together in this endeavor. With your help, we connect kids to local green spaces through school partnerships, to environmental science through internships, to sustainable learning opportunities. This valued support also allows us to protect and enhance public green spaces to make them safe, accessible and vibrant for everyone. Besides giving to us, members receive unique benefits that help them to be an active, engaged, healthy and eco-conscious member of your community.

    Help us Monitor Nocturnal Animals at a Mini-BioBlitz

    Bring your friends and family and help us count and document the different animal species in the parks we manage this summer during our Mini-BioBlitzes.

    Before we get any further, what the heck is a BioBlitz? Well, a BioBlitz is typically a 24-hour event that focuses on finding and identifying as many species of plants, animals, fungi, and any others organisms as possible in one area. The goal is to create a snapshot in time of everything that is present.

    Experience the nocturnal biodiversity and ecological richness of the natural areas around our three branches during a 2-hour Mini-BioBlitz on July 22nd at Washington Park, August 19th at Riverside Park and August 21st at Menomonee Valley.
