DuPage Monarch Project: Local Solutions for Monarch Recovery

Presentation by  Connie Schmidt and Lonnie Morris 

When Karen Oberhauser, Director of the University of Wisconsin Madison Arboretum and Chair of Monarch Joint Venture was asked why we should care about monarch butterflies, she answered that while they’re not a keystone species or significant pollinator, they are an iconic species, beloved by many.  The connections they offer with nature create a vast audience of people who care about them and the environment.

DuPage Monarch Project recognizes the widespread interest in and concern about monarch decline and has created an organization for helping people be part of the national and regional monarch conservation effort   With a few simple additions, one garden makes a difference and a community of gardens adds up to a solution.
