If you live in or near Mission, TX, you’ve probably seen more than a few butterflies in your lifetime. Mission is part of a three-county area at the southernmost tip of the state where almost 40 percent of all butterfly species native to the U.S. can be seen. It’s also where you can find the National Butterfly Center. Because Mission is located in the butterflies’ natural migratory path, it’s the perfect place to discover and enjoy these beautiful and fascinating creatures. This month, your friendly public storage experts at Go Storage Units are offering tips for viewing area butterflies during the current fall migration period.
If you’re a serious butterfly lover, you don’t want to miss this year’s Texas Butterfly Festival, which will begin on October 29 and end on November 2.. As a registrant, you’ll enjoy field trips and educational activities, private hot spot tours and fun for all ages. You can even participate in the North American Butterfly Photo Contest. At the peak of butterfly season in the Rio Grande Valley, you can expect to see as many as 60 different species in a single day, including the stunningly beautiful and recently threatened Monarch butterfly.
Bright colors, butterfly spas and sunny garden areas attract more butterflies to your property, and if you live in Mission, TX, there are plenty to attract.
