The CA Monarchs head up the coast mostly. You might be able to get tags from Monarch Alert to tag them before they leave.http://monarchalert.calpoly.edu/index.html
Or, some may even stick around.

When the adults emerge in mid-late November they will not have much of a migratory instinct and so will tend to stay in your general area. They will also be weak diapausers so some should end up mating and laying eggs.
