Come Join The Riveredge Team

More than a nature center

We’ve build our legacy since 1968 as a pioneer in the areas of land restoration, research, and inquiry-based education throughout Wisconsin.

Supporting community

Today, Riveredge is reimagining the role of the nature center by empowering and supporting communities to live in harmony with their natural environment in a way that encourages exploration, adventure, and fun while contributing to the overall quality of life for our neighbors throughout southeastern Wisconsin.

Be your authentic self

The Riveredge team values diversity – in who we are, in how we think, and how we accomplish audacious goals together. Everyone is invited to bring their authentic self to their work: their passions, their interest, their skills and talents.  We strive to build and demonstrate a growth mindset; we learn from each other and continually seek to get better in our positions, and as people, every day. We promote equity, support one other, and build diverse teams where each member can bring their unique strengths with them to the table.
