Roaming the Red Hills Complete Video by WFSU-TV
Over the course of ten adventures, we explore the Red Hills of south Georgia and north Florida. It’s a region shaped by a rich ecology, starting with a large, privately owned longleaf forest, maintained through fire for the purpose of quail hunting, but beneficial to many species. From there we head down to the Red Hills’ rivers and lakes, and the wildlife within them. We also explore our rural heritage, where local agriculture still thrives.
Here we have collected all of our Roaming the Red Hills EcoAdventures. Tall Timbers provided funding for this video series. To view the complete video click here.
