When Dr. Bailey and his partners donated a conservation easement on their property to Tall Timbers in 2011, there were costs associated with the transaction (legal fees, defense fund, etc.) that he says exceeded $25,000. He calls it “give and pay to take the easement.”
Tall Timbers, owner of Dixie Plantation on the Aucilla River in Jefferson County, helped with the ownership transfer of 160 acres of wetlands along the Aucilla River to the Suwannee River Water Management District (SRWMD). On Wednesday, Feb. 14, the transfer signing occurred in a ceremony at Dixie plantation.
Mid-to-late February typically results in a prevalence of wild flushes and running coveys, but this year male birds are already tuning their vocal chords. Yes, that’s right, we have already heard bobwhite calling activity here at Tall Timbers, along with reports from several managers in the Red Hills region indicating the same. What does this mean?
Tall Timbers hosted the second Red Hills Fire Festival on January 27. The event was designed to attract individuals and families not already knowledgeable about prescribed fire by featuring live music, food, activities for all ages, and live fire demonstrations.
