What We Do

Interest Groups

From the very beginning, the Urban Ecology Center's programming has been enhanced by the dedication of community volunteers. Groups of people have organically sprung up around a common interest and, led by volunteers, have connected people to nature in new and exciting ways. As a result, our program offerings have grown to include everything from the arts to healthy living. These groups have made the Urban Ecology Center a more vibrant community.
