The Urban Ecology Center is committed to connecting people in cities to nature and each other.

This green environmental community center was once a vacant tavern at 37th and Pierce. Designed by Uihlein Wilson Architects, the branch serves 22 south side schools through their Neighborhood Environmental Education Project. Like the Urban Ecology Center in in Riverside Park, the Menomonee Valley branch serves as a model of green building options. The Urban Ecology Center Menomonee Valley branch opened on September 8th, 2012 and measures 6,500 square feet.

Join the Urban Ecology Center for an animal feeding at noon! You can also take a self-guided tour of the building, enjoy free tea/coffee, discover their local art gallery, have fun reading or playing board games with your kids, or get involved in volunteer opportunities!
