Economic Benefits of the Red Hills Region

The Red Hills Region is typically thought of in terms of its incomparable natural resources including disappearing lakes, spring fed rivers, rolling pine forests, and hardwood hammocks teeming with wildlife.  However, recent studies have revealed that the Region’s ecological treasures are only half the story. In fact, the Red Hills is a model of sustainability — a Region that provides vital natural services like drinking water recharge, water quality protection, and climate regulation while also creating significant jobs and positive economic impact for local communities.
