4. HKE MKE 2020

The Urban Ecology Center is partnering with the Rotary Club of Milwaukee to give you a week of family-friendly hiking through Riverside Park, Washington Park and Menomonee Valley. Registration for guided hikes is $25. Sign up is still required for self-led hikes, but they are free. Participants can set up fundraising pages as well to raise money in support of the Urban Ecology Center.

5. Dinosaur Adventure Drive-Thru Milwaukee

ALL WEEK 9 A.M.-8 P.M. | WAUKESHA COUNTY EXPO CENTER

It is the last week to hop in the car to venture over to the Waukesha County Expo Center to see life-sized, “living,” “breathing” dinosaurs. Featuring a 40-foot T-Rex, a 30-foot Brachiosaurus, a Velociraptor and more, there’s fun for the whole family from the comfort of your car!
