Migrating monarchs find refuge in new garden

06_26_19_HOME_zoestory1_fmtWhen a plot of land remained untouched following completion of the Terraces $100 million renovation in 2017, a group of residents devised a plan to have an eco-friendly garden that would be a home for the migrating monarch butterflies.

Working with a landscape designer, residents Bill Fanning, Claire Taylor and Gary Cooper created a small oasis that’s in full bloom with native California plants like lilacs and manzanitas. It’s also a refuge for the local birds and bees.

“The idea of a butterfly garden is attractive to a lot of people,” Taylor said in an interview with the Los Altos Town Crier. “I think it’s going to be popular.”
