Our dear Siegfried the Swan was placed in his final resting spot earlier this week after being found in Sunset Lake, succumbed to old age. Members of the River Islands team held an intimate celebration of life as Siegfried was actually a part of the family for 13 years.

After his home lake fought against the ravages of perpetual drought, it was decided that the time had come for Siegfried to be relocated. Earlier this year, he made River Islands his new home and was welcomed as a new addition to the community. Although Siegfried was a widower, losing his mate to wildlife lurking in Napa Valley many years ago, he was never alone. Many have in fact witnessed friendships between Siegfried and other waterfowl during the time he was here. It was heartening to know that our residents kept an eye out for him much like they would for a neighbor.

We have buried Siegfried along Sunset Lake in an area marked by a beautifully hand-made cross bearing his name. In memory of Siegfried, our hope is to restock the lake with a pair of swans to give new life where one rests in peace.

Home improvement projects need approval from your CC&Rs team!


As we see the community getting ready to enjoy the great outdoors in their own backyards, please remember that gazebos, sheds and pools are just some examples of projects that need to be approved prior to getting any work started. Be sure to fill out the form and send an email with your ideas to the CC&Rs team at ccrteam@riverislands.com to avoid the cost of making changes that are not in compliance with our CC&Rs.


Here’s a good rule of thumb to follow: if your improvement plans are visible to the community eye or taller than your fence, seek approval first!


If you have additional questions or need advice, send them along to ccrteam@riverislands.com and we will get back to you with the information you need!
