Growing Up On Milkweed

On 8-28-13 Jody Heastman, DNR Indiana Master Naturalist Program Coordinator, Ouabash State Park, held a class on the plight of the Monarch Butterfly.  After the class people were allowed to take some of the Monarch Caterpillars home to raise to adulthood and release at the appropriate time.  This is the story of two of those caterpillars taken by Ind. Master Naturalist Sue Peters.
