Fire Festival is your chance to get outside and experience, enjoy, and learn about the natural role of fire in the Red Hills Region. It’s a free festival! It’s a good time with live music, prescribed fire demos, live wildlife, wagon ride tours of healthy forests, hands-on fire equipment, kids’ activities, and food vendors.
George M. Sutton (1898–1982), an esteemed ornithologist, was also one of the preeminent bird artists of the Twentieth Century. He was asked by his friend Thomas D. Burleigh, who worked on his manuscript for Georgia Birds during the 1940s and '50s, to provide the illustrations.
The 2017 breeding season is in the books, but not without a dramatic late push to the finish line. Despite birds getting out of the gate quickly, with the first nest found on May 1 (about 1 week early than normal), bobwhite per capita production in the Red Hills remained low compared to long-term averages for much of the season.
