Review from Guidestar
February 16, 2011

The Urban Ecology Center is located in a Milwaukee Park, Riverside Park.
This park was not being kept up and was not used by many people.
The UEC changed that. The park is now a vibrant place.
Many children who have never had the opportunity to investigate the
outdoors are thrilled
to come to UEC.

These kids learn about trees,plants,birds,insects,wildlife and how to
care for all these. They love it! The Urban Ecology Center is a good
thing for the neighborhhood too. I know, because I grew up here, and this was MY park.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing Riverside Park come back to life.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

just be thankful for all the smart, talented people who have made this organization possible.

Twenty years ago I lived near Riverside Park and I was among the few who ventured into it. The park was poorly maintained and considered dangerous. I have watched the Urban Ecology Center grow and the Park become inviting and popular. I have worked with UEC staff when writing my book about the need for natural areas in cities to help connect people with nature and develop an environmental ethic. They do a remarkable job and I consider the UEC one of the best things happening in Milwaukee, a model for environmental education that should be emulated in every city.

The Great!
