Rivertowne Island

This is a 2-acre hammock island within the Rivertowne neighborhood, between Parkers Landing Road and Horlbeck Creek. The area provides habitat for hundreds of animal and plant species on a permanent and migratory basis. In particular, various bird species may utilize the property for feeding, nesting, and roosting sites due to its relatively isolated location. Wading birds such as blue herons, egrets, and night herons are bird species often found on hammock islands. Mammal species such as raccoons, otters and deer have been observed using hammock islands. This privately-held island was conserved under a conservation easement in July 2011.
