Bird Habitat Properties
BEFORE YOU CLEAR YOUR LAND READ BELOW
Whitewater Springs is nearly surrounded by the Balcones Canyonlands National Wildlife Refuge which was specifically established to protect the nesting grounds of the black-capped vireo and the endangered golden-cheeked warbler (pictured above). To learn more, click HERE.
Please be aware that if your property/lot lies in or within 300 feet of the golden-cheeked warbler habitat you may NOT clear vegetation or commence work activities during the period of March 1st through August 1st of any year unless a breeding season survey, performed by a U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service permitted biologist, indicated that no golden-cheeked warblers are present within 300 feet of the desired clearing or building activity.
Failure to comply may result in the Property Owners Association Board of Directors reporting the alleged violation to the appropriate U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service office for investigation.
