Hello, my name is Breckyn Hockers, and Project M.K.E. is my own little passion project that combined two of my favorite topics of interest which are the environment and the city of Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

To clarify, this project started out as an informational website on the environmental evolution in Milwaukee. When I got the opportunity to work more on this website, I was able to include my opinion in some areas of the website.

As a disclaimer, this website will include some of my own opinions, but that does not mean that the information provided is not credible. Even though opinions will be included, information from articles and journals will also be included. Any information that is inspired or included from another source will have a citation immediately next to the information. Any photographs that were not personally taken by myself, will also be given credit. The "Works Cited" page includes all of the sources and photographs included in the website that I highly suggest you check out to gain even more knowledge on the environment in Milwaukee.
