To help boost butterfly numbers this year, Pacelli and other P.G. residents and butterfly enthusiasts are buying boxed trees to temporarily fill the gaps and provide wind breaks.
One tree is already placed, but the group aims to add about 20 more by the end of September, in time for the monarchs’ October arrival. They ask supporters to send donations with a note marked “Monarch Habitat Trees” to: P.G. Chamber of Commerce, 584 Central Ave., Pacific Grove, CA 93950.
