Honoring our ancestors while adding beauty and health to our parks

Through the help of grants from Sweet Water and the Wisconsin Arts Board, Urban Anthropology Inc.  added 30 trees to Kosciuszko Park over the last three years.  Grants from Sweet Water (Southeast Wisconsin Watershead Trust) allowed UrbAn to replace trees that have been taken down due to disease.  A grant from the Wisconsin Arts Board enabled UrbAn to add a hand-carved bench honoring the Native heritage in the Park Neighborhoods.  If you are interested in contributing a tree to any of our Park Neighborhoods’ parks, contact Rick Petrie at (414) 271-9417 or email at:
Over the years the trees will also be contributed to the other parks in Lincoln Village and Baran Park.
