Milwaukee's Urban Ecology Center Is A Gem

Had occasion twice this week to go to the Urban Ecology Center on the East side at the Milwaukee River, and just wanted to underscore how valuable and pleasurable are the building, grounds and trails.

The Urban Ecology Center's green building in Riverside ParkAddress; 1500 E. Park Place Milwaukee, WI 53211. 414-964-8505

I''ll bet there are few cities the size of Milwaukee with such a terrific institution - - now grown to include two additional facilities in the Menomonee Valley and Washington Park - - and simple, powerful mission:
Our Mission The Urban Ecology Center fosters ecological understanding as inspiration for change, neighborhood by neighborhood.

it is a treasure. We live in the neighborhood, and have frequented the place since it was housed in a couple of trailers.

I have the good fortune to be able to vote there.

I'm always telling folks that the centers are the warmest, most inviting, comfortable places in town -- and, that any day that I'm able to spend part of at one of UEC's centers is a good day!
