Mr. Aaron Peck put Pacifica High School on the map with a very cool story. A Monarch butterfly flew through his window while teaching and landed on his shoulder. To Mr. Pecks surprise, this butterfly had a tag with an Arizona phone number on it. When he called, he reached a naturalist Mr. Joe Billings. Billings tagged more than 6,000 Monarch butterfly’s over the past 5 years. For more details, please check out this article published by 91.5 KJZZ radio. Article Here
