Snakes at Our Bridges
Updated: May 4, 2021
It's spring time and along our waterways creatures are stirring, including a variety of snakes. So far, all we have seen are non-venomous snakes such as the Southern Black Racer (Coluber constrictor priapus) and either the Diamondback Watersnake (Nerodia rhombifer) or the Brown Watersnake (Nerodia taxispilota). These snakes are a natural part of our ecosystem, and attempts to eradicate them will not be successful as others will soon arrive to take up residence. Please give the snakes the right of way. If the snakes are physically harassed they can react in a manner that results in injury to you or those around you.
If you believe you have seen a venomous snake, please contact the HOA Board. A photo of the snake is helpful, not not required. Remember, allow the snake to have the right of way.
