Butterfly Town USA follows a community in Pacific Grove, California, working to protect the Monarch Grove Sanctuary, an urban preserve located near the city center.
Internal disagreements about how to best take care of this beautiful habitat are escalating at a time when climate change, deforestation, and pesticides are decimating the milkweed plants that Monarchs need to survive and impacting the Monarch population in general.
We watch, as change happens one person, one community at a time. The citizens of Pacific Grove inspire us with their activism, which is motivated by their love for Monarch Butterflies.
