From Caterpillar to Butterfly – A New Educational Experience

The Goleta MOVES (Monarch Overwintering Visual Experience Simulation) program is a new educational opportunity for the community to learn about the lifecycle and migration cycle of the Western Monarch Butterfly. The program, currently under development, will feature an outdoor exhibit, education materials, activities and more. It is a collaborative effort of the City of Goleta, Nature Tracks, Department of Fish and Wildlife, Santa Barbara Natural History Museum, and many more. This unique educational alternative is made possible through the generosity of the Santa Barbara Foundation and will be available to the public later this year. If you are an educator and would like to find out more information or schedule a field trip, or if you are interested in volunteering to assist with construction or serving as a docent, please contact JoAnne Plummer at (805) 562-5505 or
