"The Ellwood Main Monarch Butterfly Grove is one of the largest Monarch sites in the U.S. Monarchs arrive in the fall and stay until spring. They need the shelter these trees provide to survive the winter.
You can help protect the butterflies and their winter home by respecting the following guidelines throughout the year:
-Stay on trails high up on either side of the ravine to avoid damage to the tree roots and erosion in the ravine.
-Don't slide down or climb up the sides of the ravine.
-Don't climb, shake, break, trample, or otherwise mistreat the trees and their roots.
-Don't disturb, shake, or throw things at the butterflies to make them fly. They must preserve their energy until spring to mate and reproduce.
-Watch for butterflies on the ground; please don't step on them.
The Ellwood Main Monarch Butterfly Grove is on private property and permission to visit is by consent of the owners. Ellwood Main is not part of the Coronado Butterfly Preserve."
