Their Epic Migration

The beautiful Monarch Butterflies journey southward from the Pacific Northwest in September each year.

The butterflies reach Malibu by late September or early October and stay with us through February.

Until recently hundreds of thousands of monarchs have “over-wintered”in Malibu.

Long-time Malibu residents recall thousands of  Monarch Butterflies darkening the skies.

This year, however, the Malibu Monarch Project counted only several hundred butterflies in our city.
