Butterfly Garden and Walking Path

Did you know that Shady Shores is part of the Monarch Butterfly Flight Path? Unable to survive winters in the US. Monarch's survive on milkweed which is not available during the winter months. Each fall monarch butterflies head south where they hibernate for about 6 months and then the process starts all over again.  One of the few insects and pollinators that migrate to a warmer climate, that journey is threatened by the loss of a food source.   In 2016 Mayor Aughinbaugh issued a proclamation urging Shady Shores residents to help support the Monarch Butterfly by planting native milkweed and nectar plants.

To follow the progress of the Butterfly Garden visit the Butterfly Garden Page. You can help raise funds for the garden in the following ways:
