Pacific Grove is known as Butterfly Town, and residents worry that severe tree trimming keeps monarchs away. In fact a municipal ordinance imposes a fine of a thousand dollars for butterfly molestation! Not sure what that is, but I’m guessing it could be capture for mounting! Beginning in 1939 kindergarteners, wearing orange and black wings, have put on an annual butterfly parade in this town of 15,000. Migrating butterflies are expected to arrive in about a month, but here’s the flap described by Mayor Carmelitia Garcia: “Tree cutting was a horrible mistake.” The pruning of eucalyptus was meant to remove old dead limbs, but trimmers did not consult with habitat experts.
