    • To create a world where…

    • A mentor can share and guide the child in this adventure, building curiosity and respect for this natural world
    • They and others of all ages can come together in a kind of outdoor laboratory: an urban ecology center that educates and inspires people to understand and value nature as motivation for positive change

  • 5. Mission
    • The Urban Ecology Center educates and inspires people to understand and value nature as motivation for positive 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
    Mission Goals Strategy to meet these goals Tactics to meet the strategy Vision
  • 6. Approach – Guiding Lenses :
    • Our guiding lenses provide a way to “see” and evaluate a
    • new program, partnership or idea for the Center. We look
    • at these opportunities in seven different ways; an
    • opportunity must:
    • 1) meet our vision and mission
    • 2) satisfy our educational goals and rationale,
    • 3) address at least one of our established issues,
    • 4) be deemed financially and operationally feasible,
    • 5) be judged as an environmentally sustainable decision,
    • 6) engage the community to fill community needs
    • 7) be fun, creative, or “cool”
  • 7. Goals
    • 1) Maximize program reach -- youth, families, adults, and neighborhoods
    • 2) To constantly evaluate and improve every aspect of our program
