Some unique insects have people flocking to Pismo Beach. The monarch butterfly season is in full swing. Thousands of butterflies head to the beach every year. They usually arrive in October and leave in February. Docents said the Eucalyptus trees, nearby water and humid climate provide the perfect winter environment for the Monarchs. Gary Espiau, docent, said, "We're considered to be one of the most visited monarch groves in the world. In four months time, we have typically around 60,000 visitors." Right now, docents said there are about 15,000 butterflies at the monarch grove.
