2nd Annual North County Monarch Butterfly Festival

May 13, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm

The Second North County Monarch Butterfly Festival will feature butterfly-inspired art & crafts, native plants, expert speakers & much more!

The fate of the iconic Western monarch butterfly is tied inextricably to the health of the planet, and that means our fate as human beings is governed by the same forces that affect the monarchs. Simply put, if the monarch butterflies thrive, so do we, along with all of the other inhabitants of the monarch universe; conversely, if the monarchs can’t thrive in this universe, then human beings can’t either. Our main sponsor, the San Marcos lions club, is actively involved in the causes supported by Lions Clubs International, including free vision screening and sustainably protecting and restoring our environment to improve the well-being of all communities.

This event, like last year’s premier, will feature free vision screening as well as many aspects of the monarch universe, from monarch-inspired arts and crafts to jewelry, clothing, biology, pollinator gardening, milkweed and nectar plant propagation and cultivating; from discussions and presentations on a wide range of subjects, including conservation and butterfly migration, to habitat restoration and creation; from talks on diseases and predators to gardening with native plants; from children’s activities to seed exchange. If it’s recognizably monarch-butterfly related, it fits.
