Millions and Millions of Monarch Butterflies Are Headed Straight For South Carolina This Spring

Are you ready for a magical butterfly-filled spring and summer? The dainty Monarch butterflies that received so much national attention last fall for their migration southward to Mexico will soon make their way across South Carolina en route to the northern U.S. and Canada – and South Carolina will have a front row seat for the event!

When can we expect to start seeing this magical migration of Monarch butterflies in South Carolina? This interactive map on the website of the U.S. Forest Service predicts the flight patterns as well as the timing. It indicates we’re only a few short weeks away from the start of the big show here in the Palmetto State. By the second week in May, we should be swarming with butterflies!
