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.
Toll Road Plan Threatens Red Hills
Tall Timbers opposes the construction of the proposed Suncoast Connector toll road from Citrus County through Jefferson County. The M-CORES program, which includes the proposed Suncoast Connector toll road, passed through the Florida Legislature at breakneck speed with little review or analysis. Tall Timbers has a number of concerns given the potential for significant and widespread impacts.
