Migrating Monarchs at Monarch Bay Golf Club

Each year, thousands of migrating Monarch butterflies spend the winter at the Monarch Bay Golf Club to avoid the colder temperatures up north. According to the City of San Leandro web site, "Tours are conducted on Saturdays from November 6, 2004, to February 5, 2005, at 11:00 a.m., 1:00 p.m. and 2:30 p.m., and meet at the Mulford-Marina Branch Library parking lot at 13699 Aurora Drive."

You can read the Chronicle article and see some photos here.

Note that photos can't match the experience of seeing the butterflies yourself.
