Monarch Butterfly Grove in Pismo Beach
The "Butterfly Trees" of Pismo Beach are one of our most beloved attractions From late October through February, thousands of colorful Monarch butterflies cluster in the limbs of Eucalyptus and Monterey Pines in the area, giving the appearance of yellow and orange leaves. They travel over the Sierra Mountains and west of the Rockies. Some come from as far away as Canada to escape the colder temperatures of the north.
For more information on the Monarch Butterfly visit our website.
The Monarch Butterfly Grove is located half a mile south of Pismo Beach just off Hwy 1. Free parking is available inside the North Beach Campground, just north of the Trees. For more information or directions, you can also call the Pismo Beach Visitor Information Center at (805) 773-4382.
