The November 2nd opening day at the Pismo Beach Butterfly Grove was a huge success. There were an estimated 1500 people engaged in a variety of activities. I demonstrated how to make a butterfly book and had over 80 children and parents stop by my table to participate. My new children’s book, When Caterpillars Dream, is now available at the grove kiosk. Drop by and see the over 25,000 Monarch butterflies that are wintering over at the grove, located at the end of Grand Ave. along Highway one. The grove will be open until February or early March when the butterflies take to the air and fly north for the summer.
