Solstice at Home Packages contain a few special items to brighten your day, build connections, and help us celebrate the longest day of the year:one serving of bubbly, a jar of bourbon vanilla trail mix, a special UEC candle designed by Milwaukee Candle Company, and some UEC fun. Packages are available for delivery to addresses within 25 miles of the Urban Ecology Center's Riverside Park location (1500 E. Park Place.) For options outside of this area, please contact Jen Hense

The Virtual Party will take place on Zoom. A link will be sent out a few days before the event that will allow you to access the virtual party. If you would like help learning how to use Zoom before the event, please let us know! We would be happy to help.
