Shirley's Monarch Shelter

Monarch Butterflies have a safe habitat to visit this summer and fall when migrating through the U.S. to their final wintering destinations, thanks to a generous donation from the Shirley Shill family.
Shirley’s Monarch Shelter, located in Millie’s Garden at the Library, was named after Shirley Shill, a Brighton classroom teacher and founder of School Bell, the first preschool in Brighton. Shirley loved children and butterflies. The Shill family honored Shirley’s memory by helping Millie's Garden become a Certified Monarch Waystation, and by purchasing a sculpted butterfly shaped chair. The chair is nestled among the flowers that attract the brightly colored Monarch for individuals to relax and observe nature.
