Tips from locals
A nonprofit organization whose mission is to educate the community about the environment, conservation, sustainability, and other issues related to urban ecology, as well as to preserve and protect the natural areas in the city.
Access the Oak Leaf Trail from here, as well as different walking paths by the river, and that also head downtown if accessing by bike
Start your nature hike at the Urban Ecology center. One of three centers around Milwaukee, they are reviving the beautiful area around the Milwaukee River and bringing it back to it's natural state. Walk along the trail and you can almost forget you are in a metropolitan area.
Educate yourself about living amongst nature while in the city. A wonderful resource center with family oriented activities, trails and sporting equipment rentals from snowshoes to kayaks.
