Halloween is just around the corner, but this year, thanks to COVID-19 and flu season, trick-or-treating will take a lot more preplanning so that everyone can stay safe.

As in year’s past, trick-or-treating throughout Chatham, which includes The Landings, is on October 31, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m.

In 1994, The Landings established a wildlife management program. Since the program’s inception, the USDA has safely removed an average of 140 (10-to-12 deer per square mile) deer annually from The Landings’ property, with more than 70 tons of venison being donated to local food banks.

2020 The Year of the Terrapins 

While 2020 has been a challenging year for people around the world, it has been a banner year for one group of locals -- the diamondback terrapins. 

An Egg-cellent Year - Skidaway Audubon’s 2020 Diamondback Terrapin Program set a new record this summer. Volunteers rescued more than 3,459 eggs from more than 409 nests. The previous record was set in 2018, with 2,822 eggs from 320 nests. All of the eggs, found in The Landing Club’s sand traps, are placed in protected hatcheries. As of the end of September, 1,580 eggs have hatched, and the hatchlings have been released into the marshes.
