South Coast Botanic Garden Presents SOAR: Monarch Migration!
Palos Verdes homes owners can enjoy some family fun by visiting the South Coast Botanic Garden for their SOAR: Monarch Migration opening on Friday, October 1, 2021, through November 30, 2021.
Monarchs are one of only a few of the butterfly species that migrate. At the exhibit, you can learn why, how, and where they travel. The immersive pavilion will showcase monarchs and mimics (other butterflies that may look like a monarch but aren’t actually). The SOAR guides will help you become a butterfly detective, while the host and nectar garden will be planted with everything the western monarchs love, including milkweed, which helps repopulate this very special butterfly.
Monarchs have a very important story to tell. While they may be the most well-known butterfly, their population is on a steep decline. The exhibit will also touch on what YOU can do to help.
Timed ticket reservations will be required for all visitors due to social distancing. If you are not a member, the price for admission is $18/adult, $18/senior, $18/students, $12/children 5-12, and $7/toddler 2-4. (Children under 2 are free). Advanced reservations are still required, so make sure you get them before they sell out. For more information or to purchase admission tickets click here.
The South Coast Botanic Garden is located at 26300 Crenshaw Boulevard, Palos Verdes Peninsula. Due to our current situation, they recommend that you contact the garden early to make your reservations as there are a limited number of tickets.
