The three-day Western Monarch Summit will be held at the Palo Corona Regional Park in Carmel, CA, which is nearby several of our Monarch overwintering sites. The facility is called Wedgewood Weddings-Carmel, and is located at Rancho-Canada entrance to the park at 4860 Carmel Valley Rd, Carmel-By-The-Sea, CA 93923. There is plenty of parking. There is no lodging at the park, but there are several nice accommodation choices nearby.
The Monterey Peninsula Regional Park District connects nine previously protected conservation properties preserved for their biological, recreation and scenic values There are over 500 species of plants occurring in diverse habitats from the Carmel River to the mixed hardwood forest that crown’s the 3,000-foot Palo Corona Peak. The Park’s grassland ecosystem supports some of the highest numbers of individual grass and wildflower species found anywhere along California’s central coast, and the Parks department is making a concerted effort to factor pollinator habitat into their restoration efforts.
Our Summit will be held in the Fiesta Room at the Wedgewood facility.
