“As monarch butterflies lose natural habitat as a result of development, they need substitute resources on their migration route. Monarchs fly across Texas every year, and the challenge is to make San Marcos a source of food and shelter as they make this journey to and from their wintering grounds in Mexico." - Melani Howard, Habitat Conservation Plan Manager for the City of San Marcos.
