Harmony's Commitment To Conservation


Harmony's Commitment To Conservation

Even when Harmony is fully completed, thousands of acres of designated open space will surround your home site while also providing sanctuary for wildlife and native plant neighbors.

Harmony's Commitment To Conservation 
When you visit Harmony, you will not find noisy, gas-powered boats or the intrusion of private homes along the protected, peaceful shorelines of 505-acre Buck Lake and 465-acre Cat Lake. Neither will you find houses fronting our championship golf course, the roar of car traffic in your neighborhood, or the nighttime glare of over lit streets or parks.

 

What you will discover is a beautiful abundance of natural life, and a charming community engineered to strike the ideal balance between environmental health, natural preservation and homeowner amenities.

An integrated part of the town of Harmony is a 7,700 acre network of protected habitat that is near enough to make nature a part of every day living yet removed enough to provide the shelter and separation that healthy wildlife populations need. Among your Harmony animal neighbors, you will find thriving populations of deer, egrets, owls, sandhill cranes and many others of Florida's 1,200 indigenous species.

Harmony is also home to one of the largest bat houses in Florida. The first bat house at Harmony was placed near the 8th fairway of the Golf Preserve and has a capacity of about 500 bats.

Under the guidance of conservation director Greg Golgowski, both Harmony and the Preserve are carefully maintained to allow human beings, natural habitats and native wildlife to live together in a sustainable environment. From careful protection of our lakes to the use of only Dark Sky compliant streetlights, every aspect of Harmony has been designed to observe a balanced human-nature ecology.

Harmony's dedication to local ecologies and Dark Sky compliance has attracted local astronomy clubs for night sky observing and prompted residents to conduct regular birding activities, trail walks, and habitat enhancement projects.
