It wasn't enough for Edie & Bill to simply create one haven for monarchs and other wildlife. They were instrumental in the development of another amazing butterfly garden a block away from their home. The Triangle Park, owned by the Borough of Cape May Point, is now another haven for monarchs and a spot where we engage in tagging and educational outreach. The old boat, shown below, became a picturesque flower box at the north corner of the park.

Edie touched the lives of many during her time on earth. Some of her accomplishments are noted on her obituary: http://www.spilkerfuneralhome.com/obituaries/Edie-Schuhl/#!/Obituary. But what many of us around Cape May remember most vividly are the ready smiles, the heartfelt hugs, the upbeat attitude, and the endlessly deep level of compassion she shared with family, friends, neighbors, strangers, and the natural world.
