The City of Goleta is hosting a workshop at 6 p.m. next Thursday, Nov. 29, in the Council Chambers to garner input and provide a status update on the Monarch Butterfly Inventory and Habitat Management Plan.

The plan is intended to identify existing habitat conditions, identify low impact habitat improvement strategies to ensure long-term butterfly population viability, implement Goleta’s General Plan and Ellwood Mesa Open Space Plan, and support awareness of monarch butterflies and their habitat.
