Pop Up Excursions!

Looking for something fun to do outdoors with your friends or a chance to connect with other adults in a Covid-conscious environment? Join your UEC friends on a Pop-Up Excursion in 2022!

A pop-up excursion is a spontaneous outdoor adventure with an intimate group of ten people or less exploring the urban ecosystems of Milwaukee via skis, snowshoes, kayaks, bikes, food, beverages, and campfires. We will host at least one or two excursions each month and will schedule them with only a few days’ notice so we can take advantage of the snow, sunshine, and good weather when it arrives.

How do I join?!

Simply follow the Urban Ecology Center on Instagram or Facebook or check out our website to see what excursions we have planned for the coming week. You can register on our website as they pop up or buy tickets in advance at a discount that can be redeemed for any excursion all year round. Pop Up Excursions will be added to our calendar all year round in 2022!

Pop-up Excursion tickets make a great gift idea that can be shared with friends or family. Bring a friend, grab a mask, and join us outside to enjoy good company with the Urban Ecology Center.
