The Monarch Gateway will facilitate the restoration or enhancement of 20,000 acres of contiguous pollinator habitat movement corridors across the coastal and central flyways of Texas. The public is invited to this event at no charge.

Presented by: Barbara Keller-Willy, former corporate continuous improvement executive with Siemens Corporation, is now Founder and Director of the Fort Bend County non-profit, Monarch Gateway. She has long been a champion of our dwindling coastal prairie habitat and its inhabitants. As president of the Texas Land Conservancy, “Native Prairies Association of Texas,” she works to conserve Texas grasslands for pollinators and other wildlife. Her interest in native prairie restoration led her on an eight year quest to develop a propagation method for the finicky native milkweeds of Texas. Last year, Willy donated 43,000 native milkweed plants to cities, organizations and landowners who partner with Monarch Gateway and expects to have 200,000 plants available for fall 2017.
