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.

What’s New

Sound of Fire

Have you ever wondered what makes all of the different kinds of popping, hissing, and whirring on a fire? Tall Timbers is supporting research by USDA Forest Service scientist, Dr. Kara Yedinak to understand the sound of fire.  https://youtu.be/alKjARvoEA8

Dr. Yedinak is deploying a variety of instruments to document the frequencies within and well-beyond audible ranges, and she is working to relate them to the combustion characteristics of the fire and fuels that produce them. The applications of this research range from remote characterization of large fire behavior using infrasound to finer-scale quantification of fire effects measured through sound.

The Squeak Returns
to South Florida

The Brown-headed Nuthatch is nesting on Jonathan Dickinson State Park (JDSP) for the first time in over 60 years.

Before the park was established, the squeaky-voiced nuthatch was eliminated by extensive logging in the 1940s. An effort to bring this curious songbird back to the park launched last summer when staff with Tall Timbers Research Station captured ten juveniles at St. Sebastian River Preserve State Park and transported and released them at JDSP. https://youtu.be/cA82v66Nes0
