Free Friday



Friday is here - aren’t you thankful? As you make plans for the weekend, show your gratitude for friends and family by setting aside some quality time to be with them, away from electronic devices. How about a bike ride on the Bob Jones Trail or around Atascadero Lake? Or a stroll along the boardwalk at the Elfin Forest in Los Osos?

Another idea: butterfly season is here in Pismo Beach! The Monarch Butterfly Grove, located on Highway 1 just south of the North Pismo State Beach Campground, is the most visited Monarch Grove in the world. It is staffed by knowledgeable docents from 10 AM - 4 PM, with daily talks given at 11 AM and 2 PM. The beautiful orange and black butterflies cluster by the thousands in the Eucalyptus trees, giving the appearance of golden leaves. Free admission and parking. For more information, visit www.monarchbutterfly.org (their Resources page has lots of butterfly links for kids, too!).

Don’t forget to move your clocks back one hour on Saturday night! Did you know that the idea of daylight saving time was first conceived by Benjamin Franklin?
