Mexico Monarch Migration

Each year, millions of monarch butterflies (Danaus plexippus) make the journey from North America to Mexico’s Sierra Madre Mountains, flying thousands of miles to their winter home. The migration is one of nature’s most amazing phenomena. Stand amid the fir-covered mountains and witness this awe-inspiring spectacle firsthand as the monarchs flutter, dip, and swoop overhead. You’ll see countless butterflies roosting in the early morning, as well as in-flight at midday, feeding on wildflowers, and drinking at streams.

This tour will be escorted by Pacific Horticulture Board Chair, Richard Hayden, who lives in Los Angeles and works for the Natural History Museums of Los Angeles County where he is the Special Assistant to the President and Project Liaison engaged in the reimagining of the La Brea Tar Pits Museum. He is a strong proponent and communicator of resilient, organic garden practices including soil health, wildlife habitat, climate-appropriate plants, and water conservation. Richard has dedicated his career to connecting people and nature through the stewardship of public gardens.
