Visit The Awe-Inspiring Monarchs At Pacific Grove Butterfly SanctuaryEach October, thousands of Monarch butterflies begin their southern migration to warmer southern climates and Pacific Grove is their favorite place for an extended pit stop. Clustering together in the branches of eucalyptus trees, these majestic butterflies spend the winter at this protected grove, resting and flying together in an awe-inspiring whirl of delicate wings and bright color. The Monarchs fill the grove from October until February (peaking at the end of November), when they begin to leave and continue on their southern migration. Created by the City of Pacific Grove, the butterfly sanctuary serves as a natural preserve and an educational tool for visitors. After your visit to the sanctuary, head over to the Pacific Grove Museum of Natural History to see their Monarch gallery, learn more about butterflies and other native animals.
