For years I have appreciated the UW-Marathon County value to the community, including lectures, concerts and continuing education offerings. These help me to stay updated and involved. The partnership with AAUW (American Association of University Women) provides a place for programs for members of faculty, students, and the general public. Administrators and faculty have provided timely programs as well. AAUW members have worked with UWMC on programming and both daughters and I have been able to take advantage of the classes they offer.

Veterans Healing Garden

UW-Extension’s Veterans Healing Garden in Milwaukee County brings veterans together. The garden provides a space for community, clarity and peace. It gives our veterans a chance to get together and grow. UW-Extension’s educators provide food to plant and share information with the veterans to help them grow in the best way possible.
