Hueneme Masonic Cemetery

The grove of Eucalyptus at this historic site in Ventura County, CA is a host for overwintering populations of the western monarch butterfly. During their stay, monarchs need healthy forests to shelter them from winter storms and native flowers to feed on through the winter. Once an active masonic cemetery, this site has been given new life through the efforts of The Ventura County Resource Conservation District (VCRCD). To help migrating monarchs the VCRCD has planted nectar resources including winter- flowering plants, and trees to fill in the gaps in the canopy that host this iconic west coast butterfly.
