“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, Monarch Trail Time. We never seem to have enough of it, and yet some of us make better use of it than others, somehow finding time to give to something greater than ourselves. Such is the case with Barb Agnew, founder of the Monarch Trail on the Milwaukee County Grounds in Wauwatosa. Already busy as co-owner of Barb and Dick's Wildflower Florists in Wauwatosa, she donates her spare time and energy to the Monarch Trail, a 1.25-mile sanctuary for things both human and animal, including the monarch butterflies that stop here on their annual fall migration to Mexico. The abundant milkweed that grows here is the only plant on which monarchs will lay eggs and the only food that monarch caterpillars will eat. Barb and the Friends of the Monarch Trail have successfully fought many different commercial development plans to preserve an 11-acre portion of critical monarch roosting in order to guarantee the monarch keeps Wisconsin on its cross-continent route.
