About Us

It’s pretty simple; the Urban Ecology Center gets people outside.
Okay, you're thinking, doing what?  On any given day you’ll find...

  • classes of students from local schools engaging in hands-on learning about science, nature, and how to live more sustainably
  • community volunteers and staff removing invasive species and restoring urban ecosystems
  • 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 Center’s locations, people make connections between new and old ideas, their behaviors and their impact, and, most of all, with each other.
