Planning Your Field Trip

Thank you for your interest in visiting the Goleta Butterfly Grove. In order to protect this Environmentally Sensitive Habitat Area and the overwintering monarch butterflies, promote visitor safety, and ensure the best possible educational experience, we ask schools to register all field trips (with or without a docent) to the Goleta Butterfly Grove with the City of Goleta.  Please note the last day for requesting a docent-led field trip is Friday, January 30.

Please allow at least one hour for your visit to the Goleta Butterfly Grove (two hours for groups over 20 students). Large classes must divide into smaller groups split so no more than 20 children are in the main viewing area at a time. Field trips are limited to 40 students.
