*** BEWARE OF WILDLIFE IN OUR COMMUNITY - A reminder to all residents and guests that feeding or harassing wildlife is prohibited by Florida law. A Florida Panther was recently seen and otters, including babies, have been reported in some ponds. Of course many of our ponds are home to alligators. In the past residents have reported alligators crossing our community streets, in their yards, near storm drains and ponds, and on the nature trails, especially during alligator mating season. Click here for the Living With Alligators Brochure. Otters, alligators, and most wildlife can get aggressive when approached especially if they have babies nearby. It is against Florida Law to feed alligators, raccoons, sandhill cranes, and most other wild animals. (Updated 12/3/19)
