What We'll Be Doing
Brenner Brewing Company's Cheers To Volunteers program brings together groups of community-minded individuals to volunteer at local nonprofits. After giving a few hours of our time to make our city a better place, we all gather back at the brewery to socialize. The first two rounds of Brenner Beer are on us.

Join us at the Riverside Park location of the Urban Ecology Center, 1500 E Park Place, Milwaukee, WI on Saturday, November 5th from 9:30 to 11:00am to plant seedlings in the Arboretum.

WE ONLY HAVE 20 SPOTS AVAILABLE. IF YOU ARE COMING YOU MUST REGISTER BELOW.

------------------------------------------

Our group will be participating in our Land Stewardship program. As part of this program, volunteers work outside to restore and preserve the Milwaukee Rotary Centennial Arboretum's natural habitat. Our efforts, combined with hundreds of other volunteers, help make the natural land surrounding the Center the thriving place that it is today. The Arboretum is a healthy habitat for its native plants and animals, an educational resource for our members, urban students and summer campers, and a welcoming green space for all Milwaukee residents.

All of the tools necessary to complete the projects will be provided by the Center.

This volunteer experience will take place outside. We ask that everybody dress for the weather, wear closed-toed shoes, and bring anything else that they need to be comfortable outdoors (hat, sunglasses, sunscreen, insect repellant). We encourage individuals to bring their own reusable bottles which they can refill at our drinking fountain. This is a small gesture that volunteers and your company can do to help the Urban Ecology Center reach our low impact and sustainability goals.

The Urban Ecology Center is fortunate to have a free parking lot for the staff, visitors, and volunteers who drive to the Center. Out of respect for our residential neighbors' limited street parking, we ask that you park in this lot unless it is full. It is located off of East Park Place, just past (west) of the Center building on the opposite side of the street.

Urban Ecology Center's Mission
The Urban Ecology Center fosters ecological understanding as inspiration for change, neighborhood by neighborhood. Our Environmental Community Centers:

• Provide outdoor science education for urban youth.

• Protect and use public natural areas, making them safe, accessible and vibrant.

• Preserve and enhance these natural areas and their surrounding waters.

• Promote community by offering resources that support learning, volunteerism, stewardship, recreation, and camaraderie.

• Practice and model environmentally responsible behaviors


About the Urban Ecology Center
Urban Ecology Center's headquarters are located between the Riverwest and East Side communities, one of the most populated and diverse areas in Milwaukee.

Our "outdoor classroom," of Riverside Park, includes 15 acres of wooded land and riparian habitat on the east bank of the Milwaukee River, an imaginative and a habitat-themed playground. The "green" building in Riverside Park that houses our main offices, resource areas and classrooms is home to live animals, informational exhibits and user-friendly resource materials about the environment.

We are proud of our 20,000-sq.-ft. green main building located in Riverside Park. Dedicated in September 2004, the building has won national awards for its use of recycled or renewable materials. With this facility as a base, the Center will continue to be an important conduit between residents and nature. This green facility was built totally with community support.
