Wisconsin Monarch Collaborative

The magnificent monarch butterfly is in decline. But together, we can turn that trend around!

The Wisconsin Monarch Collaborative (WMC) was formed in 2017 to bring together researchers, land managers, nonprofits, and interested citizens to promote monarch collaboration in Wisconsin. With over 50 partner organizations and agencies, we represent a wide range of people working together to conserve monarchs and their habitat. 

Our primary goal is to work together to increase monarch habitat throughout the state by educating folks across our interest groups about the importance of pollinator habitat. As part of the 2019-2038 Wisconsin Monarch Conservation Strategy, developed by WMC, we set a goal of increasing the number of milkweed stems in the state by 119 million by 2038. We hope you’ll join us in working towards that goal!
