We've visited the Butterfly Grove a couple of times. Butterflies fill the trees, and if you're patient will flutter all around you.

When the butterflies are in season, it's a fascinating spectacle! Volunteer docents provide great information. There is a mile long boardwalk next to the beach which runs adjacent to the butterfly grove. The grove isn't large - maybe 2 acres, but it's beautiful & free!

Lot of butterfly and amazing to know their facts. They also had info sessions which helped understand about butterflies.

Drove past it twice - it's a little tricky to spot! Although the monarchs were pretty much gone by the time we got there the grounds are lovely and it was the perfect place to hike and explore. We did spot about three monarchs and there were lots of flowers and herbs to learn about. A definite 'must-do' if the butterflies are there!
