The sites that make up the Western Monarch Trail will consist of signage along the migration path of the western monarch butterfly. These sites, whether on public or private lands, are crucial overwintering, breeding and nectaring locations for monarchs during their migration.

Pismo State Beach Monarch Grove 

Located on the beautiful central coast of California, the Pismo State Beach Monarch Grove has a lot to offer. Historically, it has had one of the largest overwintering western monarch populations with November through February as the best time to see the monarchs in early morning clusters. For more information to plan your visit, where to stay and what to do, visit Highway 1 Discovery Route.

Signage will also be staked in the following western states: Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Utah and Nevada.
