Santa Barbara Monarch Butterfly Grove

For the last few years, my wife Helen and I have taken a weekend retreat at the Immaculate Heart Center in Montecito, California.  We took a side trip this year to visit the nearby Santa Barbara Monarch Butterfly Grove.

The Ellwood Main Monarch Butterfly Grove in Santa Barbara, California is one of the largest monarch sites in the U.S.  Monarchs arrive in the fall and stay until spring.  The trees provide the shelter needed by the monarchs to survive the winter.
