Monarch Butterfly Day is set for 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and will be held at the park’s Forest Shelter. The event and parking are free. Food trucks will be on site.
The state legislature in 2004 approved Senate Concurrent Resolution 66, declaring Feb. 5, 2004, and subsequent anniversaries to be California Western Monarch Day. Mile Square Regional Park is one of the only places in Orange County that has an official Monarch Butterfly Day
