Wasps Treated on Chickacoan Trail Path

The path near Chickacoan Trail between Sundance and Cattail Meadow was treated for large wasps.  The location is noted below.  Please stay away for the next couple of days until the area is clear. Orange cones were placed near the area of the tree that was treated.  The treatment was sprayed on the tree and not the path, but please note it is harmful to pets if ingested.

Next Family Camp Out is Tonight!

Sign up for upcoming Family Camp Outs:

Every month now through October, we will have two Friday campouts per month. This will allow you to come and pitch a tent, enjoy S’mores and a fire pit, come inside and pet the animals and have bedtime stories. You can come to the Nature Center lawn and pitch your tent at 4:00pm, but we don’t light the fire until around 7:00pm. Kids have night games in the lawn and, when the weather is hot, we get out all of the water toys. If you want to come and enjoy the evening but don’t have the camping equipment we would love to have you. Costs are only $10.00 per family. These costs remain the same if you camp out or not as they cover the wood and marshmallows.

FSR Customer Care Notice (HOA Assessments)

If you are trying to reach FirstService Residential for HOA assessment and account related questions, please be patient as some of their call centers have been affected by the latest weather conditions.  

As Irma is tracking to Florida, the Customer Care Center has moved all calls to the Nevada center. The volume for the Customer Care Center will be extremely high due to Haley and now Irma, which will make call times longer than normal. FSR realizes the importance of homeowner inquiries, so the Nevada center has added team members to assist with the volume.
