Olivia Raasch

Olivia’s journey with the UEC began all the way back in third grade during a fieldtrip to our Riverside Park branch. She was part of our high school Outdoor Leader program in 2012, and is now a Community Programs Educator and Volunteer Coordinator at our Washington Park branch. As a Milwaukee native, Olivia enjoys finding new places around the city to explore. She loves ice skating with her little brother, camping with her family, and swimming on hot days. Karaoke? Also a plus!

The Outdoor Leader program at the Urban Ecology Center allows youth to get outside, learn about green careers, make friends, and get paid! It is our goal to provide high school students the resources and guidance to make connections within themselves, their communities, and nature. Outdoor Leaders are a part of our Green Career Pathway program, which engages people of all ages, backgrounds, and interests in studies of ecology, volunteerism, environmental justice, and much more.
