Staying up to date on conservation efforts and important issues affecting the Red Hills

By Neil Fleckenstein, Land Conservancy Planning Coordinator

The Tall Timbers website is a great way to access information on a wide array of topics related to Tall Timbers and the Red Hills region. The Tall Timbers Land Conservancy (TTLC) portion of the site is focused on two important aspects of our work: land conservation and land use planning/advocacy. By clicking on, you can learn the basics about conservation easements including financial incentives for doing an easement, easement process and costs, and answers to common easement-related questions. 

Issue Brief on Nestle Waters and the Wacissa River

The TTLC portion of the Tall Timbers website also includes a link to stay informed about the growth and infrastructure-related issues that could adversely affect the Red Hills region. Web surfers pointing their browser to can access detailed issue briefs organized in four subject areas: Land Use and Community Planning, Transportation and Infrastructure, Water Resources, and Air Quality. For example, the Water Resources section includes issue briefs on protecting the Wacissa River from commercial water extraction and the proposed Tired Creek Lake in Grady County. 

An important part of each brief is an overview of the issue, how it could affect the Red Hills, and what the public can do to help. We believe this is a great way to provide up to date information on important issues affecting the Red Hills. Tall Timbers staff will also use Twitter (@talltimbers1958) and email to communicate time sensitive information to constituents.
