SOCIAL DISTANCING FRIENDLY OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES

Together, we can slow the spread of COVID-19 by making a conscious effort to keep a physical distance between each other.  Social distancing is proven to be one of the most effective ways to reduce the spread of illness during an outbreak.  With patience and cooperation, we can all do our part. 

Luckily for us, living at Predator Ridge means we have a 1,200 acre backyard at our disposal, which is the perfect place to practice social distancing while enjoying spring in the beautiful outdoors.
