The Friends of the Monarch Trail Announcements:

The preservation of the Milwaukee County Grounds as natural space needs our help, just as so many natural spaces require understanding of nature, wildlife and ecosystems.
As we continue to pursue as much area for habitat of Monarch Butterflies on this site we are also engaging school groups and scouts to plant host plants for all the butterflies that are struggling because of habitat loss.
2010 will be the greatest challenge yet for Monarch Butterflies, what better place to start getting outdoors than this diverse wildspace right in the middle of Milwaukee!
Thank you to our Eagle Scouts for their efforts to build the kiosk and footbridge, plant trees and endangered purple milkweed!
We anticipated many projects this year, stay tuned.....

You're Invited!

WI Association for Environmental Education is hosting a 2nd annual Lobby Day Breakfast at theWisconsin League of Conservation Voters (WLCV) Lobby Day on
Wednesday March 16th!

Come discover how EE is part of the WLCV’s priorities and how you can support Wisconsin's Children's Outdoor Bill of Rights.

The entire event, including breakfast, is free.

Please plan to join us from 9-10am in Madison on March 16th at the Monona Terrace - Room M/Q.

Continental breakfast will be provided, plus time for networking and the opportunity to learn about the Children's Outdoor Bill of Rights and how you can get involved. After breakfast, join WLCV's schedule of events.

Now is a great time for you to get involved: the Children's Outdoor Bill of Rights is a non-budgetary resolution and may be just what legislators are looking for to stand behind (rather than the politically charged "budget repair" bill). However, in order to be heard above the current turmoil and get legislators' support, it's critical the EE community speaks up to say "EE in our state is important". March 16th is the only organized Lobby Day for this issue during the current legislative session, so come! Have breakfast, learn about advocacy, show your support, get involved and have fun!
Registration ends March 9th so, act now to sign up for this exciting EE opportunity!

To sign up for this special WAEE event, contact Betsy Parker at or (608) 209-2909.

Please forward this invitation to others who may be interested!

Hi Barb,

Nice to hear from You!  I'm so happy You are so thoroughly involved with the monarchs and kids!!  I'm hoping to stop by Your flower shop some time--maybe after the holidays to inquire if there is anything I can do to help.

Looking forward to meeting You.

Sincerely,   Jody

Thanks for all you do! I was very dissapointed that UWM would build on a green space. I did publish a few op/ed articles in support of protecting our green space and Monarch habitat. My book launch activities for Every Natural Fact are right around the corner. May 24 7-8:30 at the Urban Ecology Center. May 25, 6:30-8 at the Wauwatsoa Library. Hope to see nature lovers there!

Hi Barb! Welcome to C&NN. I'm so glad you found us. Your photos are astounding! And your work on the Monarch Trail is really inspirational and important. Here in northern CA, I've begun to notice a few Monarchs and other butterflies back from their winter habitats. I hope you'll keep us posted on the Trail and continue to make yourself at home here, and that you find the forum a rich source of resources and camaraderie. Cheers!
