WORDS FROM CLAUDIA WAGEMANN –
HOST FOR THE MONARCH BUTTERFLY GROVE TOUR
Looking forward to the Geranium Society visit in 2 weeks. I walked over there from my cottage
today at about 2:30. It was a very busy place. With lots of butterflies gliding around.
Can folks RSVP so I know how many scones?Redaffodil@yahoo.com?
Monarch Butterfly Grove and Geranium Society Meeting Pismo Beach off Hwy 1
Saturday, January 27 2 – 4 or 5pm
3pm Tea & Meeting at Claudia’s Cottage
823 North First Street Grover Beach
Points to consider:
PARKINGis only along Hwy 1 or if on Front St. you have to walk across the tracks and Hiway 1.
Crowds arrive early. Geranium Society members are welcome to park at my cottage and walk 1
block downhill, across Front Street and the railroad tracks (a little rocky and high stepping over
the tracks), and then across Hwy 1. It takes less than 5 minutes if no train is zipping thru. The walk
back is up that little hill.
If you park on Hwy 1, to get to my cottage from the Butterfly Grove: Drive SOUTH on Hwy 1 back to
West Grand, LEFT on to West Grand, LEFT on to 4th, LEFT on to Ocean View, down the hill,
RIGHT at 1st Street. ~ 12 minutes.
TIMING:Plan to arrive at the grove before 2. The program starts at the group of benches in a
rectangle. After the talk folks walk around to enjoy the butterflies. Looking thru the scopes is a real treat.
TEA & MEETING:3ish Carol Jeanson and I are delighted to prepare a little tea (coffee & champagne
also) for the group to enjoy on my patio if warm or inside if not. One never knows the weather in Grover.
If one has seen the butterflies recently you are welcome to stay at my cottage until the group returns
around 3 or so.
MY YARD: Please do not expect an amazing geranium-filled garden. I just do the best I can….
Maybe the daffodils will be up…
Looking forward to seeing you all.
