About Membership

Members are the heart of the Urban Ecology Center! When you become a member, you join an incredible community of people who are passionate about connecting people in cities to nature and each other. Your membership makes it possible for tens of thousands of people to connect to local green spaces in three of Milwaukee's unique neighborhood parks: Riverside Park, Washington Park, and Menomonee Valley.

Your membership will also help you connect to nature and to the other amazing folks in the UEC member community.  When you join, you’ll have access to unique benefits like FREE equipment lending, invitations to members-only events, and discounts on programming for all ages that help you to be an active, engaged, healthy and eco-conscious member of your community.

Giving and receiving at the same time: a win-win!

Want to make your membership even better? Invite a friend to join and you can enjoy being members together! As our membership grows, so does access to the natural world for communities across the city. Connecting more people to nature makes our city stronger, healthier, and more vibrant. 

You could even give them a gift membership!
