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.
Each event has a limited amount of avalilable spaces for volunteers. Please enter your contact information to reserve a spot. Your phone number is not necessary, but it would be very helpful incase something comes up at the last minute and we need to get in touch with you. These events are rain or shine.
