Volunteer- Urban Ecology Center

Were Thankful for the Urban Ecology Center!

This month The Writing and Visual Cultures LLC along with Creating your Future LLC joined forces and helped beautify Riverside Park and volunteered inside the Urban Ecology Center.

Community members who saw a need to re-vamp Riverside Park started the Urban Ecology center. Today the UEC organizes park cleanups and uses the park to teach neighborhood students about nature and science. Their programs bring Milwaukee’s children and families into nature and as a result Milwaukee children are learning what they need to know to succeed, and adults keep on learning about how our changing world around us works.

We are grateful for the opportunity to give back to the Milwaukee community. We plan on visiting the Urban Ecology Center in spring to work on additional projects they have.
