Wild Times on Skidaway Island PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Wild Times on Skidaway Island free pdf This book details life in a unique Audubon-designated, ecologically friendly refuge. There, golfers pitch balls around endangered great blue herons, mama racoons march their babies across backyard decks where once Guale Indians trapped ancestors of the same racoons, and residents dodge alligators and rescue snakes. Even the vegetation is wild. Three hundred-year-old oaks dripping Spanish moss and poison ivy surmount an under-story of wax myrtle and holly. Carolina jasmine, Cherokee roses, and endangered orchids grow wild in the rain forest. The book examines choices residents make when stared down by a bald eagle, when a red-tailed hawk mistakes a golf ball for bird food, when wakened at midnight by deer munching hibiscus. This book educates about the species that residents must adapt to on this historic island.
