The Landings lagoon system and its importance to our area’s ecosystem will be the topic of the CCA of Skidaway’s May meeting and seminar to be held on Monday, May 14, at St. Peter’s Church beginning at 7:00 pm. Sean Burgess, The Landings Association’s Environmental Manager, will be the featured speaker. Sean will also give attendees an update on the work being done on the sprayfield off McWhorter, as well as other areas of local interest.
Sean will offer an overview of The Landings lagoon system design, function and uses. In addition, he will take a look at the fishery management programs created jointly by CCA and The Landings Association that have produced one of the best freshwater fisheries in our area. Using slides, he’ll also present the new technology items available to residents with the Geothinq layer for lagoons and property ownership which can be found on TLA’s website.
A member of The Landings’ staff since 2004, Sean currently handles the management and administration of the community’s environmental resource areas, including landscaping, lagoon and tree maintenance, environmental permitting, fleet and animal control with the management of 6 in-house and oversight of 18 full-time contract employees. A graduate of Lakeland College with a BA in Biology, Sean previously served as an Aquatic Biologist and as a Fishery Technician for the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.
A select spinning rod & reel, ideal for fishing for large-mouth bass & redfish in The Landings lagoons will be the prize for the CCA’s May raffle.
