Monarchs

Sorry, there are no airings at this time. Please check this page for future updates.

Have you ever wondered what 100,000 Monarch Butterflies look like? Well here's your chance. Huell travels to Pismo State Beach to visit the largest overwintering site for Monarch butterflies in the U.S. More people visit this site than any another butterfly site in the world. Last year they had 50,000 visitors! Every year hundreds of thousands of Monarchs fly as much as two thousand miles to reach safe overwintering sites along California's central coast. They can fly up to one hundred miles a day at an altitude of up to ten thousand feet. What's amazing is that none of the butterflies that make this amazing journey have ever been here before. The butterflies have nothing but instinct to guide them. Huell gets a special tour of this wonderful site from a Park Ranger, docents and a class from Cal Poly who studies the Monarchs. It's a feast for the eyes.
