• Monarch Update

    By Jessica Griffith
    We counted at PG on Friday Feb. 27.

    There were still 11,605 monarchs, and they were all still clustering in the pines and cypress trees outside of the Sanctuary boundaries. Not a single one on any eucalyptus! They were flying around and mating like crazy by 9 a.m. that morning.
    There were still around 900 monarchs at the private property site in Big Sur, but the monarchs are basically gone from all of the other sites. Just that site & the PG Monarch Sanctuary still have butterflies.

    This week will be our very last week of monarch counting, so stay tuned for one more update!

  • Beach Report Card


    This is the Heal the Bay Beach Report Card for Monterey Peninsula beaches, which reports water quality grades, or when relevant, weather advisories. An A to F grade is assigned based on the health risks of swimming or surfing at that location. Look at the "dry" grade for all days except those "wet" days during and within 3 days after a rainstorm. Click here for more information on the Beach Report Card. Click the name of the beach when it pops up for more details, or choose a beach below.
