Special care is being taken to ensure that development of Fiddler's Creek® results in minimal impact on the area's environment. From planning to implementation, careful attention is given to preserve the delicate balance between man and nature. Our initiatives include:
- Approximately 5.5 miles of meandering creeks will be created, with 3 miles of them buffering the 3,931 acre community and the majority of the 750 acres of sensitive wetlands bordering Fiddler’s Creek to the south.
- The creeks will also help to restore the historic north-to-south water patterns and mimic the disbursement of this flow to provide habitat for fish and wading birds
- The restoration of the historic sheet flows is an integral part of Fiddler's Creek® development process. In the past, the unabated and uncontrolled pumping of millions of water into the area by farmers not only altered the historic sheet flows that wildlife had become dependent upon for centuries, but severely altered the natural hydroperiods as well. These hydroperiods are what maintains the seasonal variations and unique diversity of Florida's plant species.
- With construction completed for approximately 2.5 miles of the creeks, water flow is channeled and disbursed in a manner that closely tries to replicate historic patterns. Once the creeks are complete, the natural hydroperiods previously disturbed by decades of farming will be restored as closely as possible to the levels established by nature decades ago.
- Exotic plant species such as melaleuca, Australian pine, Brazilian pepper and cattail will be removed in order to allow indigenous species to regenerate.
- Acres of additional littoral zones are being added to lake edges to aid in the development of marine life, which in turn will benefit the greater species such as woodstork, blue heron, ibis and others.
