WFSU-TV recently produced a three-segment EcoShakespeare series exploring connections of culture and ecology during Shakespeare’s lifetime. Filmed against a scenic Red Hills backdrop, the series also examines current conservation issues in our region.

Georgia Ackerman, project manager of the Red Hills Awareness Initiative, likes to bike commute to work at Tall Timbers because it’s a great way to observe wildlife. See her blog in the Tallahassee Democrat, “The Benefits of Slow.”
