What We Do


We love adventure here at the Urban Ecology Center, and while we usually encourage the exploration of our own backyards, we know that some of the greatest adventures happen when you heed the call of the wild and journey far from home.

Our Eco-travel program lets you roam away from home while getting the same focus on nature, education, community and fun that informs everything we do. And because our trips are lead by Center staff members who have lived in or traveled extensively through the area you'll explore, you're assured the kind of intimate, off-the-beaten-path experience that comes from traveling with a local.
