The Monarch Butterfly is perhaps the most recognizable butterflies in the world, but their numbers have been drastically dwindling over the years. Michael Schlesinger found some local conservationists taking it upon themselves to do something about it.
"Habitat Is A Challenge For Some Wisconsin Butterfly Species
Feds Could Add Monarchs To Threatened Species List"
30+ people worked to plant 1,500 milkweed and nectar plants in 3 areas on the new DOT land. This will provide more diversity in the plant community as well as help to restore monarch butterfly resources that supported the population and migration in previous years.
Sincere thanks to the many people who came out to help on a hot summer afternoon!—the monarchs will thank us all.
