DUBUQUE, Iowa (AP) — Organizers behind a monarch butterfly tagging event in Dubuque this weekend say the creatures were a no-show.
More than 20 people hiked through the Whitewater Canyon Wildlife Area on Sunday in search of the monarchs, who will soon migrate south to Mexico. But they couldn't find the butterflies.
Jenny Ammon, the Dubuque County Conservation Board naturalist, says the creatures have been conspicuously absent from the area all summer. She says she's only seen a handful in recent months.
Ammon tagged three monarchs last year. The practice helps track their annual progress.
The Dubuque Telegraph Herald reports (http://bit.ly/1dVEm8s ) the tri-state area's history of droughts and flooding, as well as tornadoes in Kansas, disrupted the monarch's migratory paths.
