Monarchs find sanctuary with Guttenberg gardener


No, that's not a pin accenting Rosalie Kickbush's top, but a newly-hatched Monarch butterfly. The Guttenberg woman has been using a "nursery" box to protect the species as it transitions from egg to adult stage. (Photo submitted)

By Shelia Tomkins 

It all began at a quilt retreat in Oelwein. Rosalie Kickbush of Guttenberg learned more than just new quilting skills, she also met a fellow quilter who arrived bearing boxes of caterpillars munching on milkweed leaves.

The woman explained how  the caterpillars would eventually emerge as Monarch butterflies after passing through the chrysalis (or pupa) stage. Meanwhile, she provided them a haven from predators and gave them a steady supply of leaves.
