Butterfly Biosphere Reserves


Leave your vehicle behind to walk a groomed but at times fairly steep trail into the fir tree forest favored by the butterflies. As you continue along the trail, note how the forest thickens toward on approach to the destination you share today with 60 million to more than a billion butterflies congregating in the forest after eight months and four generations of migration. The sun warms and lights their wings to reward visitors with a unique and remarkable display of light and color.  Your expert guide will ensure that you experience this unparalleled and mysterious phenomenon as more than simply an extraordinary spectacle; pause to discuss ecology, natural history and conservation issues in the sanctuary. Enjoy a picnic lunch today in a nearby forested location.
