Goleta Monarch Butterfly Grove
About Goleta Monarch Butterfly Grove in Goleta, California
The Goleta Monarch Butterfly Grove goes by several names including Ellwood Main Monarch Butterfly Grove as it is signed when you get there. It is located next to Ellwood Beach just west of Santa Barbara. This is one of several monarch butterfly groves in California that are home to tens of thousands of butterflies during the winter months. In November to February you can find these eucalyptus trees covered in bright orange butterflies. It is quite spectacular to see in person.
In 2017 the grove was impacted by the drought which killed many trees and left others struggling. For this reason, parts of the grove might be closed while they remove trees. Trails still pass by the grove on the way to Ellwood Beach.
