Join our Community Forums! / ¡Únete a nuestros foros comunitarios!

Several times a week, I get to hear new ideas — from members, visitors or Young Scientists. Each person who participates at the Urban Ecology Center has experiences, knowledge and ideas to share, and one of my favorite parts of my job is getting the chance to hear the ideas from our community.

As you can imagine, some of my favorite events at the Center are our Community Forums—meetings that are open to the public, whose intent is to give our whole community the opportunity to share their opinions and ideas, and for our staff to have the chance to connect with community members and listen to these opinions and ideas.

This fall at our Menomonee Valley branch, we will have two opportunities to participate in a Community Forum: Monday, Nov 13th from 3:30-5pm, and Tuesday Nov 14th from 6 -7:30pm. You can register on our website if you would like, but it is not necessary to register in advance. At each forum, we want to hear about your experiences and ideas about our programs. We will also share a meal together as we get to know one another. Each forum will also be followed by a brief, optional tour of the building and the park.

We hope to see you at one of the Community Forums — come join the conversation!

Varias veces a la semana, escucho nuevas ideas de miembros del Centro, visitantes, y de jóvenes científicos. Cada persona que participa en el Urban Ecology Center tiene experiencias, conocimiento e ideas que compartir, y una de las partes favoritas de mi trabajo es tener la oportunidad de escuchar las ideas de nuestra comunidad.

Como pueden imaginarse unos de mis eventos preferidos son los Foros Comunitarios. Los cuales son reuniones que están abiertas al público, donde la intención es brindar la oportunidad a toda la comunidad de compartir sus opiniones e ideas, y para que también nuestros empleados puedan conectar más con la comunidad y conocer sus intereses.

Durante este otoño, en Menomonee Valley, tendremos dos oportunidades para participar en el Foro Comunitario: el lunes, 13 de Noviembre desde las 3:30. a las 5 p.m., y también el martes, 14 de Noviembre desde las 6 a las 7:30 p.m. Puede registrarse en nuestra página web si lo desea, pero no es necesario. En cada foro, queremos escuchar sus experiencias e ideas sobre nuestros programas, y mientras conversamos compartiremos una comida. Cada foro se acompañará de un breve paseo por el edificio y por el parque. ¡Esperamos verlo y que se una a la conversación!

Glenna grew up a mile up the river from the Riverside Park, so the Urban Ecology Center has always been important to her. Her studies and work have taken her all over the hemisphere, but her home has always been right here in Milwaukee. As Menomonee Valley Branch Manager, she is delighted to be part of the team that is working to connect a new community to the nature in their neighborhood. Her favorite things to do include hiking, exploring, cooking, singing, building forts, and trying to convince children that cockleburs are really baby porcupines!
