HKE MKE: family-friendly hikes to support our mission

The Urban Ecology Center hosted our 7th annual HKE MKE from September 25 through October 2, 2021! Hikers had over 30 hikes to choose from including a sunrise hike in the Menomonee Valley, a history hike in Washington Park and a hike and watercolor painting session in Riverside Park.

Through the combined efforts of all of our hikers and some generous matching donors, over $57,000 was raised! We are humbled by the generosity of our participants, and by the generosity of their friends and family. HKE MKE raised important funds to support the Urban Ecology Center's mission to connect people in cities to nature and each other.

We love being able to share the beauty of Riverside Park, Washington Park, and Three Bridges Park with our community during HKE MKE. Take a look at how much fun hikers had throughout the week:
