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.
Keep Shady Shores Beautiful has been working on the design and creation of a Butterfly Garden and walking Path to be placed next to the Community Center. Construction is planned in phases and will get underway this fall. Last month KSSB members were notified that a $400 grant for the purchase of plants was received from the Native Plant Society. You can help raise funds for the garden in the following ways:
Purchase a Memorial Brick
