URBAN ECOLOGY CENTER INC
April 19, 2012

I have been involved with the UEC for almost a year now, and I think the work they are doing to revitalize the communities surrounding their 2 (soon to be 3) locations is outstanding. And I feel like I would be hard pressed to find a more passionate and welcoming staff. I like that they offer so many ways to be involved in the work they do, education, citizen science, land stewardship, urban sustainability, community building, etc. There is a place for everyone at the UEC!

The Great!

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

seeing the growth of several Young Scientist Club members at Washington Park, as well as several High School Outdoor Leaders at Riverside Park.
