Drive time from Sea Glass House 4 min / walk time 18 min This magical place is where Monarch Butterflies come for winter shelter. Thousands of Monarchs arrive in November and enjoy the mild climate until they head back home in early spring, usually around March. These amazing butterflies fly thousands of miles to get here. Their numbers are diminishing over many years so every year they come back, locals are hopeful they will be able to continue the migration. If you live more than 10 miles from a coastal Monarch destination site, you can make a big difference by planting native milkweed and nectar flowers in your yard! (If you live within 10 miles of a coastal Monarch destination site, plant nectar flowers to help provide the energy they need for their migration.
