SANTA CRUZ — The 27th annual migration festival unfolded Saturday at Natural Bridges State Park. Living beings that migrate, from butterflies to whales, were the central topic at the free event that drew hundreds of visitors under sunny and mild skies.

“Though we only have two Monarch butterflys here now there is a lot of information here today about migration in our area,” said Sate Park Ranger Jamie Stamps. “Usually we have a lot more Monarchs at this time but not this year; even the pros don’t know why.

The Monarch is celebrated each year on the second Sunday in October at Welcome Back Monarch Day, which has been a tradition since 1980.
