The Red Hills Region is a 300,000-acre area located between Thomasville, Georgia and Tallahassee, Florida. Known for its rolling hills and red clay soils, the region is rich in biological diversity, historic resources, and scenic beauty. Often called the land between two rivers, the Red Hills Region is nestled between the scenic Ochlockonee and Aucilla Rivers. The region serves as a lifeline between coastal and northern wildlands. Natural, historical, and cultural wonders abound throughout the Red Hills.
Episode 5 – Next Generation of Prescribed Fire
In this week’s episode of Fire University, Marcus Lashley sits down with Kevin Robertson, Morgan Varner, and Kevin Hiers at Tall Timbers where they discuss the socio-ecological complexities of fire ecology, and delve into the upcoming technological revolution leading us into the next generation of prescribed burning. Listen now.
New Fire Mapping Tool
Tall Timbers Geospatial Lab provided major technical support in the development of SE FireMap, a new tool that tracks both prescribed fire and wildfire activity on public and private lands across the range of the longleaf pine. This product will have many uses, including improved management of wildfire risk and targeting of prescribed burn implementation and training. SE FireMap was developed with funding by the USDA NRCS, and in partnership with several other organizations. Access SE FireMap at http://bit.ly/SEFireMap
Tall Timbers and the Florida Forest Service have developed a new digital campaign to continue building support for the use of prescribed fire. Using modern marketing techniques, the project asks Floridians to let neighbors know that prescribed fire protects the lands we love and communities we live in. The public website at WhyPrescribedFire.org and the new partner toolkit provide videos and other resources to help spread the word. For access to the partner toolkit or more information, contact Brian Wiebler.
