The Urban Ecology has transformed a neighborhood and a natural area in the heart of the city and made it a safe and accessible place. I feel safe hiking and biking alone in an area I would never have considered venturing alone 20 years ago. I love to visit the UEC with my children to play, sled, snowshoe, hike, visit the animal room or just hang out. I also enjoy going there alone to concentrate on projects away from home and to fly my kite from the lookout tower. It is a good place to recharge! The UEC staff are warm and caring folks and can really engage children and adults alike in the wonders of nature and in the ways of living lightly on the planet.
