Last week I talked about creating community wildlife gardens and how much more wildlife habitat we could create when we worked together with our neighbors and communities. This weekend I had the pleasure of visiting Triangle Park Butterfly Garden in Cape May, which is a Certified Wildlife Habitat garden created by the residents of Cape May Point, NJ.
The Triangle Park wildlife garden is a small triangle of land in the intersection of three roads on the way to the Cape May Point State Park where the iconic Cape May Lighthouse is located, as well as the world renowned Cape May Hawk Watch.
It’s always a wonder to me how many butterflies can be found here because the residents of Cape May Point have created such a welcoming garden, which is lovingly tended throughout the seasons.
So if you’re on your way to see the amazing spectacle of Hawk Migration, or the wonderful phenomenon of Monarch Migration in Cape May Point, make sure you take the time to visit this beautiful butterfly garden on your way in. It is well worth the time to see just how many different kinds of butterflies and other pollinators you can spot here:
It’s amazing how much more we can do when we work together as a team. What are you doing with your neighbors to create more wildlife habitat? Are you participating in a community wildlife habitat garden in your town?
