Lunch & Learn: The Magic of Monarch Butterflies

March 16, 2017 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm

Bring your lunch and get to know your local Land Trust! We will be featuring a variety of speakers and topics on the 3rd Thursday of the month from 12:30-1:30 pm. Free and open to the public. 1528 Chapala Street Rm 201. Contact the office to reserve your seat as space is limited: (805) 966-4520 [email protected]

Charis van der Heide, Regional Coordinator for the Xerces Society, will lead a talk about the life cycles of monarch butterflies, current population status and threats as there have been steep declines in the monarch butterfly population over the past 20 years.

The Land Trust’s Coronado Butterfly Preserve is adjacent to the largest Monarch butterfly over-wintering groves in California. Monarch butterflies migrate to the adjacent Goleta Butterfly Grove for their over-wintering time, which is typically from November through February, with peak numbers usually visible in December and January.
