Attention Walkers & Hikers: Trails at The Nature Conservancy’s Green Swamp Preserve Remain Closed to the Public

Trails at The Nature Conservancy’s Green Swamp Preserve in Brunswick County are closed because of an ongoing wildfire. It is unlikely that the trails will reopen this week because efforts are still underway to extinguish the fire, which was the result of a lightning strike on May 8.

“We know people love to walk in the Green Swamp,” said Deborah Maurer, who is director of the Conservancy’s Southeastern North Carolina office. “But the fire poses a potential risk for visitors. And visitors could also hamper our efforts to put this fire out.”

The Conservancy will update its Facebook (facebook.com/TNCNC) account when the trails reopen.

PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE – 5/17/22

Dear Sea Trail Property Owners:

Here are a couple of updates:

Ponds:  There is a lot of discussion around the community about the lack of water in the ponds.  Many have questioned the amount of algae in the pond at Jones #5 along Rice Mill Circle and behind Edgewater Circle. We have been told that the low water level was caused by a break or breach of the earthen berm in the pond which has created low water levels. These low water levels allowed for the sunlight to penetrate to the bottom of this pond and create a large algae bloom. Some of the algae was flushed to the next two ponds down. The Sea Trail  Golf Course personnel have informed the STMA that this pond has been repaired and can now retain water.  Until the water depth is reestablished, this pond will be difficult to treat as the pond management  company cannot take a boat out as usual and is only able to treat this pond from the shoreline.  The golf course has also had to turn off this fountain as there is so little water in the pond.  On a positive note, the pond company did come and treat the lower ponds a second time which has made a major impact on the algae in those ponds. The water level in most of the ponds is very low.  Unfortunately, we have not received much rainfall in the past 18 months and the ponds are just not filling back up as you would normally expect or need.  There is also a broken pump on the Maples course which is also having an impact on irrigation but the golf course is in the process of fixing these issues.Maintenance for the majority of the ponds are the responsibility of the golf course as they are on golf course property.  We need help from Mother Nature to bring rainfall to the area to bring the ponds up to the right water level.  We hope this information helps to answer some of your questions about the issues with the ponds.  Any other questions should be directed to golf course personnel.MAC Pool:  A BIG Thank you to the Pool Committee for their work on Sunday, May 15th. The pool furniture has been cleaned and power washed and  set up around the pool, ready for the MAC pool opening.  Many thanks to our hard-working volunteers…. Ray Coakley, Ruth Bilderback, Dennis and Donna Morris, Gail Treglia, Charlie Winter, Chris and Sheryl Dick, and Kevin and Maura Baldwin.Great News:  The MAC Pool will be opening on Saturday, May 21 at 6:00 am!  The MAC Pool will be open Saturday, May 21st and Sunday, May 22nd.  Hours will be 6:00 am – 9:00 pm at MAC and Pink Palace pools. The MAC Pool will be closed M-W May 23-25 and will re-open  May 26, Thursday at 6:00 am for the Memorial Day Holiday weekend.Pool Reminders:  The Pink Palace Pool and the VAC Pool are open while the MAC Pool is closed.  Riptide Builders is working very hard to complete the MAC Project and due to safety reasons we will close the pool May 23-25 so that they can complete the exterior work.  We appreciate your patience.  We are excited to show you the totally brand new MAC interior in the near future!!The Pink Palace pool will close to swimming at 5:30 pm on Friday, May 27th for TGIF.  All Sea Trail residents are invited to attend TGIF on May 27th at 6:00 pm to hear the Sea Trail Songbirds celebrate Memorial Day with Patriotic Tunes.
