I am on my last cycle of monarchs this year and I wondered where they migrate to. I heard somewhere that monarchs just stay here. Does that mean that they in the trees somewhere? Any one have any Info on this? I'd like to check it out.

I'd like to know the same thing about South Florida. No one seems to know the answer.

Western Monarchs winter near the coast throughout California. I believe somewhere near Santa Cruz draws a large winter gathering. I have included a link to several spots closer to San Diego.

We have a non-migratory group of Monarchs in south and south-central Florida. If there isn't a hard freeze I will have Monarchs all year long. I live in Central Florida, about twenty miles due west of Orlando.

The vast majority of Monarchs in the USA migrate to and from Mexico. I believe the migration back to Mexico is going to start soon, if it hasn't already begun.
