Uptick in Numbers for 31411

The cumulative number of COVID-19 cases for Skidaway Island is 154 positive test results, an increase of 11 new cases from last week. 

The Association will be reporting the number of cases in the 31411 zip code (includes all of Skidaway Island) each Friday in E-news. If you would like to monitor the data more frequently, please go to the Health District website (https://covid19.gachd.org/covid-19-cases-by-zip-code/).

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. One safety suggestion involves those participating in Halloween to hand out individually wrapped treats outside.

As in year’s past, trick-or-treating in 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.
