“The monarch’s ability to repopulate ..., 20 Oct 2012 [cached]
“The monarch’s ability to repopulate is determined by the amount of habitat left in the United States,†says Barb Agnew, founder of the Monarch Trail in southeast Wisconsin. “Every day we lose 6,000 acres of land across the country. Developers like flat, open fieldsâ€"exactly the habitat required by most butterfly species, including the monarch.â€
For Barb, this hits close to home. For four years she has dedicated her time and energy to protecting one of these essential butterfly way stations on 89 acres dubbed the Monarch Trail, located in an urban area of Milwaukee. But now the city is looking to develop the site.
“The Monarch Trail was established because I needed people to witness the migration in order to convince them that this area must be preserved,†says Barb. “Monarchs need this rest area to fuel up for their long journey south in fall. It also serves as an essential roosting site for future generations.â€
Barb and the supporters of the Monarch Trail have written letters and attended meetings to try to save it. While a good portion of the land will still be developed, the group did manage to get a slice of it designated just for monarchs. It was a small victory, but a big moment for Barb.

"Throughout the 18 months Mandel has been planning the residential portion of the development, there was never any indication they needed to demolish any of the buildings," said Barb Agnew, coalition member and chairwoman of the Friends of the Monarch Trail.

Barb Agnew, president of the Friends of the Monarch Trail and Wauwatosa resident, asked the council to incorporate "six preservation points" into the final plan. The first of those points called for sticking with 850,000 square feet of development on the site, which would keep with the city-endorsed comprehensive plan for the area.
She said this requirement would "condense their footprint in the spirit of 21st century design, stewardship and habitat protection," she said.
Agnew also worried that the potential revenue associated with economic development were overshadowing the value of retaining the land in its natural state.

But Barb Agnew, chairwoman of the Friends of the Monarch Trail environmental group, said she thinks the latest plan, which includes preservation of the butterfly habitat, is acceptable.
"I'm happy with how it looks on paper," she said.
Despite her satisfaction with the new design, Agnew said, she plans to seek more changes. For instance, she said, she wants the foundation to contribute money for parks and the restoration of undeveloped areas in the County Grounds.
The development of the campus will take years, so Agnew said she also will ask that the foundation not grade or disturb land until a final construction deal is in place.
She said she will suggest those changes to the Wauwatosa Plan Commission at a Monday hearing.
