The Greater Red Hills Awareness Initiative-connecting residents to their region

The Greater Red Hills Awareness Initiative is a collaborative effort that connects people and organizations, enhances communication, and fosters a commitment to promote and conserve the irreplaceable ecological, historical, and cultural resources that provide a cherished way of life for the residents of this distinctive region. Tall Timbers Research Station & Land Conservancy and other regional organizations have long recognized the importance of stewardship and conservation of the natural, historical, and cultural resources that greatly contribute to the uniqueness of the Red Hills Region.

Community leaders partnering in the Initiative work collaboratively to communicate more fully on existing public outreach activities and to plan additional Red Hills’ awareness events and undertakings. It seems that there are limitless choices to help celebrate the history, culture, and ecology of the Red Hills Region.

The collaborative partners of the Greater Red Hills Awareness Initiative seek to broaden the public’s recognition of the breadth of natural, historical and cultural amenities of the region. This increased public awareness begins with the residents of the Red Hills Region. Project partners want to ensure that Red Hills’ dwellers are familiar with the exceptionality of their home.
