And the conservationist promoting this $300 million Butterfly
Palace says "How can we afford not to do it and risk losing
the Western Monarchs altogether?" 

In reality, monarch overwintering sites can be created from scratch for 
the pocket change price of $250.00 worth of trees.  Just buy 50 blue 
gum eucalyptus trees for $5 each at the local wholesale tree nursery 
and plant them in a U-shaped configuration on existing, government 
owned land along the California coast.

But I know very few monarch butterfly conservationists interested in 
any monarch conservation solution that doesn't involve spending 
millions of dollars.
