  Butterfly Watching
share page:

Butterfly watching is a great way to learn more about local natural history. More than 100 species of butterflies live in the Santa Barbara regions. Some are common and widespread, while others are rare or found only in small areas. Look for butterflies nectaring on flowers, sipping water at mud puddles and at the edges of streams, or looking for mates on open hilltops. Happy butterfly watching!
