Wild Turkeys Couldn't Keep Me Away from Beaver Lake and the Sanctuary. We walk around Beaver Lake almost every week, visit our neighbors. We continue to be amazed with the light-flashing waters. The surrounding mountains border the Beaver Lake as if to entice a canvas from some modern-day French Impressionist . The acres of open space where kids play, the families finding picnic spots, and just beyond, the canoes awaiting turns to glide by all participate in this colorful scene. A sense of "all's right" in the world seems to be in the air.
If you are a birder, you will love the Beaver Lake Sanctuary where you can spot LOONS, GREBES, CORMORANTS, HERONS, SWANS, GEESE, AND DUCKS. HUMMINGBIRDS and WOODPECKERS...just to name a few. There's one species that you might not find there...
(hint-hint...see photo I took on the way home last night)...
...it's the wild turkey....but I can tell you, for sure, that wild turkeys do live and prosper nearby.
Here's a checklist my birding friends take with them when they walk the boardwalk into the Beaver Lake Sanctuary. Being a fancier of nature, I'm a big fan of this place. The sanctuary was established in the mid-1980s, when the Audubon Society successfully led an effort to prevent construction of a strip mall on the site.
The Lakeview Park neighborhood is right up the hill from Beaver Lake and the Sanctuary. . This is a "sustainable" neighborhood in which people who live there absolutely delight.
I actually have known eco-friendly re-modelers to completely reconstruct a home to make it green to the bones, just to live in this neighborhood.
Where an awareness and appreciation of nature, wildlife and natural ecosystems, and responsible environmental stewardship come together, that's Asheville's green real estate scene...and wild turkeys couldn't keep me away from all the eco-innovation that's happening here!
