After the January 2017 Family Day at the Nature Center event, TGO Nature Center volunteer, Sandy Juba, received a call about an alligator. Here’s what happened next:

 “On Plantation Drive, an alligator found its way into someone’s port.  It got cornered and attempted to climb the lattice fence.  We finally got it back on the ground and captured it. We relocated him to the pond in their backyard on hole #1. Hopefully he won’t come back. Thanks to Billy Killingsworth for helping me in this capture.”
