Monarch City USA looking to migrate to Sturgeon Bay

You could be seeing more monarch butterflies hovering around the city of Sturgeon Bay soon.  The Sturgeon Bay Community Protection and Services Committee will discuss the possible affiliation with Monarch City USA at its upcoming meeting tonight.  Monarch City USA is a non-profit organization helping to revitalize the monarch butterfly population by encouraging the planting of milkweed and nectar plants in municipalities around the country.  Committee member Seth Wiederanders, who received a packet of information recently, says Sturgeon Bay could become the first Monarch City USA in northeastern Wisconsin.  He envisions where the pollinating plants could thrive in the city.

 

 

Wiederanders believes the minimal investment of purchasing a few Monarch City USA signs to display in the community is well worth it.  The Sturgeon Bay Community Protection and Services Committee will meet at 4 pm at City Hall on Thursday.
