Monarch Conservation: Understanding the issues, How you can help.

January 21, 2024 | 10:00 am - 11:00 am


Barb Agnew, Director Friends of the Monarch Trail. 

Although much is being done, monarchs were recently listed as endangered by the International Union for the Conservation of Nature. Given the current downward trajectory of the monarch population, how long do we have to ramp up our efforts?

Barb Agnew of the Monarch Trail organization will discuss what can be accomplished:

  • At home: Planting ideals and basic practices to help pollinators.
  • In your neighborhood: Connecting gardens and commons with “paths” of plantings and community plantings.
  • In your City: Policy changes within your community for large businesses’ parking areas, mowing, herbicide policy, planting medians and swales.

Host: Barbara Leigh

In-Person: In Max Otto Hall.

First Unitarian Society of Milwaukee

For over 50 years, the Sunday Forum lecture series has showcased provocative, sometimes controversial, speakers discussing topical issues of the day: politics, the environment, health issues, the arts, education, and more. The Sunday Forum is held at 10:00 a.m. September through May. Speakers give a 45-minute presentation, followed by questions and brief comments from the audience. The content of Forum lectures does not necessarily express the viewpoint of First Unitarian Society of Milwaukee, but are meant to offer thoughtful topics which our members often pursue further on their own.
