What We Do

Community Programs

As an environmental community center, we have a lot of programs focused on community engagement.

Programs and Events Calendar

Find our public events on our Programs & Events Calendar. You will be able to see details, register for events and easily share them with others on social networks.

Special Events and Festivals

Come together with the community for fun at our Special Events and Festivals. Check our Program & Events Calendar for upcoming events. 

Interest Groups

These volunteer led groups help to expand our program offerings where community can learn, discuss, and share ideas about relevant topics with others in the community. Most interest groups meet monthly.

Urban Adventures

We want people to get out side and be active! Our Urban Adventures programs are focused on outdoor recreational activities like canoeing, hiking, biking, rock climbing, cross country skiing, snowshoeing, ice skating and more! Look for upcoming public programs on our Program & Events Calendar.

Programs for Families and Kids

Programming for kids and families is plentiful at the Urban Ecology Center! Whether you want to have a birthday party – or as we call them, B’earthday Parties – attend a public program with your family, or send your kids to one of our Summer Camps, there is a lot for families to do! (or we could include festivals here)

Programs for Teens

Teens can get involved in lots of ways including joining us for a Public Teen Program, volunteering, or working for the Center as a High School Outdoor Leader.

Programs for Adults

We offer fun and engaging programs for adults. Join us for educational and recreational programs including fascinating lectures, volunteering to support the Center, or attending our annual fundraising events.
