Sponsor the 2022 Red Hills Spring Dinner Fundraising Event


Tall Timbers will host the Red Hills Spring Dinner at Livingston Place in Greenville, Florida, on Thursday, April 14, 2022. This fundraising event will celebrate the grand reopening of the historic manor house after a four-year, award-winning restoration project.

Livingston Place was the winter hunting estate of Gerald and Eleanor Livingston, and has hosted the Continental Field Trial since 1937.  Acclaimed architect John Russell Pope designed the Neo-Classical Revival house in 1936, and it is regarded as one of his finest residential works. Pope also designed the Jefferson Memorial, the National Archives, and the National Gallery of Art on the Washington Mall. Now fully furnished, the mansion is ready to showcase its unique grandeur.

The Red Hills Spring Dinner will honor Daphne and Marty Wood who provided guidance and major financial support to bring the restoration project to fruition. Under the aegis of grants from the Florida Department of State, the event will also recognize the restoration specialists whose stellar work brought the building back to life.

Since 1989, this special event has brought together Red Hills landowners and community leaders to celebrate conservation efforts in Southwest Georgia and North Florida.  Over 158,000 acres have been permanently saved by Tall Timbers. These lands protect both critical wildlife habitat and clean water resources for our region.

Livingston Place is at the center of our regional conservation effort. To share the history of this beautiful property with its visitors, Tall Timbers is planning a museum-quality historic exhibit room in the house. The exhibit will explore the national treasure of the Red Hills; the history of the Livingston family; African American heritage and contributions; and Tall Timbers’ research and conservation efforts.

All proceeds from the Red Hills Spring Dinner fundraising event will help complete this important exhibit project.
