What We Do

Current Research & Community Science Schedule


Month of June

Welcome to the Research and Community Science monthly schedule! Due to unprecedented circumstances regarding COVID-19, the Urban Ecology Center is closed to all public programming, including volunteer opportunities. Unfortunately, that means that impacts our work and we have canceled all bird walks and field work for volunteers to particiapte in for the time being. In the mean time, please follow this page for recent updates as it pertains to Community Science at the Urban Ecology Center. What is happening in the world doesn't mean you can't get outside and enjoy the birds and nature. We encourage hikes, bike rides, and bird watching from your backyard or neighborhood. Bring the members of your household and make sure to maintain a six foot buffer between yourselves and other people in the public.

Join our summer time phenology challenge by participating on iNaturalist. Check out this blog for more details on how to join. Nearly 400 observations were recorded in the spring Milwaukee phenology challenge!

Please join us for weekly Friday lectures at 9am CST about Backyard Wildlife. You can find all the previously recorded lectures on Backyard Wildlife and on an Introduction to eBird series here.

As always, please stay safe and as always, Happy Researching! - Maggie, Ethan, Tim
