The UW-Whitewater Sustainability Office is excited to announce the UW-Whitewater Nature Preserve as a registered Monarch Waystation, or area conversing habitats for monarch butterflies. The campus added nearly 400 milkweed plants to the large-scale prairie restoration plans. These plants were donated by Monarch Watch as part of their program, Bring Back the Monarchs. These essential nectar sources will be enjoyed by hundreds of monarchs later in the summer.
The community is encouraged to enjoy the tranquil walking paths throughout the Nature Preserve and prairie while watching for monarchs in all phases of their life cycle!
