Riveredge Nature Center is southeastern Wisconsin's first independent nature center and celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2018. Ted Neitzke first visited Riveredge in 1979 as a student in the Port Washington School District. That's when his love for nature and, particularly Riveredge, really began to blossom. Ted now serves as Riveredge's Board President and works hard to connect our communities to the outdoors through education and in their own backyards. Professionally, Ted is the Agency Administrator/CEO of CESA 6 with Wisconsin's Department of Public Instruction. Riveredge is proud to have Ted as a passionate advocate supporting the organization's mission. 
There are lots of exciting things happening at Riveredge Nature Center, including the start of a charter school next fall, summer camps and other educational programs, and of course Frothy Forage on May 18, providing adults with an opportunity to drink in nature as god intended. They have been growing over the last several years, and have more than doubled their annual visitors from previous years. They are on track to have over 52,000 visitors in 2019 and hope you will be one of them.
