Monarch Butterfly Migration

Usually September or October

Monarch Butterflies often stop near East Point Lighthouse on their migration from New England and Canada to their wintering spots in Mexico. Sometimes the trees, especially the cedars, are filled with butterflies taking shelter for the night.  It's very difficult to predict this event. It can happen anytime from late August to early November, depending on the temperature and wind direction and other unknowable factors.  If you happen to be there when there is a major display, please send pictures.
