So I've been looking for a few out of the way butterfly groves, they should be overwintering here now. My wife and i drove past the crowds at the Pismo Butterfly Grove over the weekend.
I went to look at the grove at Monarch Dunes in Nipomo an there wasn't a single Monarch to be found in the 'grove' set aside there. It was real breezy there, so I'm not surprised if they destroyed the habitat during construction by removing too many trees and loosing the wind block.
Are there other Butterfly overwintering spots to check out on the central coast?
