Snow n' Go

Snow n' Go Facebook Group A kid and adult sledding

We have lot of winter fun planned here at the Urban Ecology Center, but our random Wisconsin weather patterns don't always grace us with the snow we need. To make the most of the snow when it it does fall, the Snow & Go group will alert members to any spontaneous winter antics we whip up!

Cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, sledding, even skating on the Washington Park lagoon if the ice is safe! Join the Snow & Go group to stay updated on winter fun that pops up when the snow flies.

 Remember, you can always create your own adventure this winter by borrowing our outdoor equipment! Become a UEC member for free access to snowshoes, cross country skis, sleds, and so much more.
