Friends of the Monarch Trail enthusiastically invite you to our our Migration Celebration 2018!
Sunday August 26th, 4 – 7:30 pm. The location is 9810 Eschweiler Dr. in Wauwatosa, Wisconsin.
We have many citizen scientists with displays—everything you ever wanted to know about Monarch Butterflies!
We will also have continuous Guided Tours along the Trail to show the roosting areas, describe the micro-climates associated with them and the history of the preservation.
United States scientists are anticipating a good migration this year and we are hoping they will come through our roosting area in big numbers!
Come on out to this delightful family event: a picnic, music, education, in a natural setting with butterflies. Wear your wings! Bring your hatched monarchs for release! (And….. the Super Moon rises at 8:00 pm!)
The weather might be "iffy" with a threat of rain. Please bring proper rain gear and/or umbrellas. If there is threatening weather, the event may be cancelled.
*Please see Facebook feed on theMonarchTrail.org or the Friends of the Monarch Trail Facebook page directly for updates. See you Sunday! butterflybarb

What water, wetland protection is all about
"A little fill here and there may seem to be nothing to become excited about. But one fill, though comparatively inconsequential, may lead to another, and another, and before long a great body may be eaten away until it may no longer exist. Our navigable waters are a precious natural heritage, once gone, they disappear forever," wrote the Wisconsin Supreme Court in its 1960 opinion resolving Hixon v. PSC and buttressing The Public Trust Doctrine, Article IX of the Wisconsin State Constitution.
